Foo Fighters Announce New Album 'Concrete and Gold'

The Foo Fighters will release their ninth album, Concrete and Gold, September 15th.

Concrete and Gold is available to pre-order digitally and on CD and vinyl. A variety of merchandise bundles – some of which include Foo Fighters socks and a Russian nesting doll set – are available via the band's website.

Concrete and Gold follows the Foo Fighters' 2014 album Sonic Highways and their 2015 follow-up EP, Saint Cecilia. The band recorded the new album at Hollywood's EastWest Studios with contemporary pop stalwart Greg Kurstin, who has worked with Adele, Sia, Pink and more. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said he became a fan of Kurstin through his indie pop duo, the Bird and the Bee, and thought his pop pedigree would create an interesting challenge for the Foo Fighters.

"So I think maybe Greg is the guy that we ask to be our producer because he's never made a heavy rock record before and we've never worked with a pop producer," Grohl said. The musician described the combination of their styles as, "Our noise and Greg's big brain and all of his sophisticated arrangements and composition."

The Foo Fighters previously teased Concrete and Gold with a surprise new song, "Run." At a recent festival gig in Iceland they debuted another track, "Lah Dee Da."
