Foo Fighters Releases New Song “Waiting On A War”
- American rock band Foo Fighters released a new song “Waiting On A War” from their upcoming tenth studio album “Medicine at Midnight” on January 14, 2021.
The new album is set to be released on February 5, 2021. Originally scheduled for 2020, the album was delayed to February due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington DC, I was always afraid of war,”frontman Dave Grohl said of the song. “I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980's and my proximity to the Nation's Capitol. My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.”
He continued, “Last fall, as I was driving my daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, 'Daddy, is there going to be a war?' My heart sank as I realized that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago,” he says. “I wrote 'Waiting on a War' that day. Everyday waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do. This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does.”
