The Foo Fighters next album will be called “Sonic Highways,” and it sounds pretty heavy.
The rock band formerly announced the album title — which it shares with upcoming HBO documentary series “Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways” — and released a 13-second snippet (above) of one of the eight tracks that were each recorded in a different city.
The album, the band’s ninth, was produced by Butch Vig and recorded in studios in Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York.
The recording, which hits stores on Nov. 10, will also feature “local legends” sitting in on the sessions. Though no names have been officially confirmed, reports claim guests on “Sonic Highways” will include KISS’ Paul Stanley, Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, Cheap Trick’st Rick Nielsen, Zac Brown, and Gary Clark, Jr.
The HBO series that chronicles the production premieres Oct. 17.
