The Foo Fighters dropped their ninth album Concrete and Gold and an animated documentary about making of the new album on Sept. 15. The video The Making of Concrete and Gold, was also released and can be watched above.
Watch The Making of Concrete and Gold to hear the story of how Grohl recruited super-producer Greg Kurstin for the album. Grohl met and befriended “genius” producer Kurstin in Hawaii while they were both dining at a restaurant. Grohl said he was a huge fan of the producer, who has worked with artists like Sia, Adele, and Pink. The Foo Fighters' leadman credited Kurstin with adding a sophisticated sense of jazz and melody to the “gigantic' Foo Fighters’ album.
Concrete and Gold features unexpected guest appearances from huge stars including rock superstar Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, The Bird and the Bee’s Inara George, Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman, and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart. The album was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters and mixed by Darrell Thorp. The album is the follow-up to Foo Fighters’ 2014 album Sonic Highway.
The Foo Fighters have lined up an extensive fall tour in support of Concrete and Gold. The band will perform in the U.S. through December and will head to Australia in January.
