Stream This | Faith No More Returns With New Single

Next year, genre-defying legends Faith No More will release their eighth studio album and first since 1997’s Album Of The Year. Today, we have our first taste of the new LP as Rolling Stone has premiered the band’s new single -“Motherfucker.”

Bassist Bill Gould produced the track and the album, which Faith No More recorded in their Oakland rehearsal space. “It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability. Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage. . .y’know, stuff like that,” keyboardist Roddy Bottum said in a statement.

A digital version of “Motherfucker” can be purchased at iTunes and will be available as a limited-edition 7″ single on Black Friday.
