Foo Fighters have unveiled the second song from forthcoming album, Concrete and Gold, along with its music video. The tune is entitled “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” and its visual was directed by leading man Dave Grohl.
The stadium-ready track has a Blues backbone boasting an anthemic vibe that will make many fans raise their fists and punch the air above them. Grohl describes the latest Foo record as “the biggest thing sonically that we’ve ever done,” which is funny because the song was recorded in a single afternoon by Grohl and fellow Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.
In a press release, Grohl goes on to say “One night I was lying out looking up at stars… Just imagining all of these stars as places that have life on them as well, and I decided that the sky is a neighborhood, that we need to keep our shit together in order to survive in this universe full of life. But I had no music yet. I just had the title. So everyday I would walk around, kind of humming this thing in my head.”
