Dave Grohl says “fuck it”, previews a new Foo Fighters track at an acoustic benefit concert

Everybody and their mum loves some Foo Fighters. Davey Grohl and the boys are a band at the top of their game, but their release calendar has been sadly a little sparse since their 2014 record Sonic Highways.

The band have teased an upcoming album for 2017 though, and at an acoustic benefit performance yesterday, Grohl said “fuck it” and previewed one of their new tracks.

How long have you been waiting for a new Foo Fighters track? Scratch the itch with a preview of their new track The Sky is a Neighborhood.

Grohl was performing as part of Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield’s annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit show when he welcomed drummer Taylor Hawkins onstage. Together with a pianist, they debuted a new Foo Fighters song called The Sky is a Neighborhood.

“I figured on the way up here, I thought, fuck it, let’s play a new song,” Grohl said by way of introduction. “Let’s do something nobody’s heard. Never played this song in front of anybody.”
