As we have been expecting for a few days now since we became aware of the gorilla marketing in LA, the Foo Fighters debuted a brand new song on last night’s momentous Saturday Night Live on NBC. The track is called ‘Shame Shame’ and it has some very groove-oriented parts at a slower yet methodical pace. As for the lyrics, I can interpret as an inner-dialogue of longing for someone or something.
The Foos confirmed through this big performance it is the first single from their upcoming new album, ‘Medicine At Midnight’ which comes out February 5th. You can stream the SNL performance and the album version here. In the clip above, Dave Grohl shares in the video clip above that the new album will have a very fun vibe to it because they had so much fun recording it.
Here is the audio version that was released today.
In an emotional second performance on SNL last night, this band reminded you again why they are just so special with ‘Times Like These’ It featured an opening build with an undercurrent of an organ from Rami Jaffee simmered underneath Grohl with those raise-the-hair-on-your-arms lyrics. The simplicity of this reinvented take on this modern classic is just wonderful. The whole song is about reinvention and re-discovering who you are, and the song feels really exciting here.
