Foo Fighters quietly drop EP featuring Dead Kennedys, Arcade Fire covers
The new record features five songs in total.
The band have yet to post on social media about the new EP, so it showed up on streaming services as a surprise.
You can listen to the new EP “01070725” below.
While we appreciate the EP, we’re really excited about the possibility of getting a new Foo Fighters record next year. The band haven’t released an album since September 2017’s Concrete and Gold.
The band’s drummer Taylor Hawkins recently told fans that the band plans to release their tenth studio album next year in an interview with RockSound.
He said they hope “to have a new record by next year”.
“From what I’ve heard from our fearless leader Dave Grohl, he has a lot of demos that he’s worked on and I think we’ll start once this tour is over,” he said. “I think not too soon after that we’ll start the process of putting the songs together as a band.”
Hawkins also talked about songs he’d like the band to cover, saying “anything by Lil Pump”.
“I just think we could nail that. I feel a connection to his music and I feel like we’d just kill some Lil Pump,” he said with a wink, which means he was probably kidding but we’d still like to hear what they’d come up with.
