The Foo Fighters recorded the eight songs on their new album Sonic Highways in the famous studios of eight different cities, with local luminaries sitting in on all of them. And they also made an HBO series out of it; that’s called Sonic Highways, too. From the looks of its latest trailer, the series won’t just document the recording of the album; it’ll be about the distinctive musical histories of every one of these cities. Cameos include Ian MacKaye, Steve Albini, Dolly Parton, LL Cool J, Willie Nelson, Pharrell, Ben Gibbard, President Barack Obama, and, uh, Macklemore. The trailer features a bit of the new Foos song “Something From Nothing.” Watch it below, and check out the Sonic Highways tracklist.
01 “Something from Nothing”
02 “The Feast And The Famine”
04 “What Did I Do? / God As My Witness”
06 “In The Clear”
08 “I Am A River”
Sonic Highways, the album, is out 11/10 on Rosell/RCA. Sonic Highways, the TV show, debuts 10/17 on HBO.
