The title and track listing of Foo FightersÃ¢ÂÂ 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 GrohlÃ¢ÂÂs home in CaliforniaÃ¢ÂÂs San Fernando Valley. The no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the bandÃ¢ÂÂs 15-year-plus career: From first single Ã¢ÂÂRopeÃ¢ÂÂ to the frenetic opener Ã¢ÂÂBridge BurningÃ¢ÂÂ to the beautifully bipolar Ã¢ÂÂThese DaysÃ¢ÂÂ to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould (Ã¢ÂÂDear Rosemary") and Krist Novoselic ("I Should Have Known"), Wasting Light is a singular triumph: a band thatÃ¢ÂÂs headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with a world class bandÃ¢ÂÂs finest hour.
Concurrent with the albumÃ¢ÂÂs release, Exclusive Media GroupÃ¢ÂÂs documentary division Spitfire Pictures are producingÃ a feature documentary about the Foo Fighters directed by Academy Award winner James Moll (The Last Days, Running The Sahara).Ã Co-produced and co-financed by Exclusive Media Group and RCA Records, MollÃ¢ÂÂs documentary chronicles the entire history of the Foo Fighters, from the cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as NirvanaÃ¢ÂÂs 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.Ã Ã This chronicling of the Foo FightersÃ¢ÂÂ triumphs and tragedies Ã 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 GrohlÃ¢ÂÂs garage completely on analog tape.
