Foo Fighters has finally released its 10th studio album titled “Medicine at Midnight“ under Roswell Records/RCA Records. Following delays due to the unprecedented challenges of releasing an album during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the album finally landed on February 5, 2021 with nine tracks of power-driven, anthemic rock tunes that drummer Taylor Hawkins described as more pop-oriented than previous releases.
On its first day, “Medicine at Midnight” peaked at number 1 on several iTunes album charts worldwide and is raring for one of rock music’s biggest debuts on major music markets this year, including the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. Its release wraps up Foo Fighters’ week-long partnership with Spotify, which featured surprise “Midnight Drops” of exclusive video, audio and playlist content, an occasion marked by the band’s larger than life appearance on Spotify’s Times Square billboard.
To celebrate the release of their new album, Foo Fighters will host a special six-part radio series “Medicine at Midnight Radio” on Apple Music Hits. Each band member will host an hour-long episode where they will explore their personal inspirations and reflect on the creative process behind the album.
Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl founded Foo Fighters in 1994. He has been the lead vocalist and a guitarist of the band since then.
In 1995, Nate Mendel joined the band as the bassist while Pat Smear joined as a guitarist and a backup vocalist. In 1997, Hawkins joined as the drummer, the percussionist and a backup vocalist.
In 1999, Chris Shiflett became a member of the band as a guitarist and a backup vocalist. Rami Jaffee became the latest member in 2017 as the keyboardist/pianist.
Fans can tune in every day next week, beginning February 8, 2021 at 4:00p PST on Apple Music Hits at apple.co/FFRadio and simultaneously on the band’s new limited-run SiriusXM channel, Foo Fighters Radio (channel 105). Grohl also joined Zane Lowe on his daily Apple Music 1 show earlier this week to chat about the album.
“Medicine at Midnight” is produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent. The album is available on all digital platforms worldwide.
