Foo Fighters Share New Single ‘Waiting On A War’
The nine-track follow-up to 2017’s Concrete And Gold was co-produced by Foo Fighters and Greg Kurstin. Dave Grohl and company previously shared Medicine At Midnight singles “No Son Of Mine” and “Shame Shame.”
“Waiting On A War” arrives today on Dave Grohl’s 52nd birthday and features extremely personal lyrics written by the Foo Fighters frontman. The lyrics stem from a question posed by Grohl’s daughter that brought back memories of growing up in Washington D.C. during the Cold War.
Dave Grohl detailed the conversation with his daughter, Harper, that inspired “Waiting On A War”:
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.
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.
