David Letterman gets an entire week of Foo Fighters
The Foo Fighters have announced a week-long residency on The Late Show with David Letterman as they gear up to launch their 8th album, ‘Sonic Highways.
Next week, Grohl and the boys will be playing covers of songs inspired by the new album.
Grohl is expected to sit with Letterman for an interview on the 13th of October.
The HBO ode to the album titled ‘Sonic Highways’ will debut on HBO on Oct. 17th. The film chronicles the making of the album – which the band recorded in eight different U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Nashville and Austin, among others, since each has its own unique musical history – as well as the musical history of each locale. A three-and-a-half-minute preview for the series showed interviews with artists like Dolly Parton, Slash, Clive Davis, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, LL Cool J, Macklemore and more, as well as non-musicians like President Barack Obama and Rolling Stone’s David Fricke.
The album, produced by Butch Vig will be released with eight new songs on Novemeber 11th.
