The title and track listing of Foo Fightersâ upcoming seventh full length studio album has been revealed. Wasting Light will be released April 12 by Roswell/RCA and will consist of the following tracks:
Back & Forth
A Matter Of Time
Miss The Misery
I Should Have Known
First single "Rope" will be available beginning March 1 both as a digital single and as an instant grat with the iTunes pre-order of Wasting Light.
Produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder, Wasting Light was recorded entirely on analog tape in the garage of Grohlâs home in Californiaâs San Fernando Valley. The no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the bandâs 15-year-plus career: From first single âRopeâ to the frenetic opener âBridge Burningâ to the beautifully bipolar âThese Daysâ to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould (âDear Rosemary") and Krist Novoselic ("I Should Have Known"), Wasting Light is a singular triumph: a band thatâs headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with a world class bandâs finest hour.
Concurrent with the albumâs release, Exclusive Media Groupâs documentary division Spitfire Pictures are producingÂ a feature documentary about the Foo Fighters directed by Academy Award winner James Moll (The Last Days, Running The Sahara).Â Co-produced and co-financed by Exclusive Media Group and RCA Records, Mollâs documentary chronicles the entire history of the Foo Fighters, from the cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvanaâs drummer through their ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.Â Â This chronicling of the Foo Fightersâ triumphs and tragedies Â culminates in an in-depth behind the scenes perspective on the making of the new album: A process in which the band pushed itself forward by returning to its roots and recording in Grohlâs garage completely on analog tape.
