Foo Fighters Announce New Album Medicine At Midnight, Listen To New Song Shame Shame
On last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Dave Chappelle, the Foos debuted new track Shame Shame, the first single from their upcoming LP Medicine At Midnight – due for release on February 5, 2021. It’s the first new music we’ve heard from Dave Grohl and co. since 2017’s Concrete And Gold record.
And it’s not the pounding rock’n’roll rager you might have been expecting, sounding almost restrained in its slower, brooding tempo with slightly funked-up rhythms. The visualiser for the track also errs on the dark side, showing a black and white image of a couple standing in the wilderness as a coffin burns behind them. Cheery stuff.
Clocking in at 4:20 though, this might be the longest track on Medicine At Midnight, as the nine-track album is just 37-minutes long.

Speaking to Kerrang! at the start of 2020 about their new album, Foos mainman Dave said: “I’m fucking excited for people to hear it and I can’t wait to jump on that fucking stage to play it.
“There are choruses on this record that 50-fucking-thousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s fucking hearts together in that moment. And that’s what it’s all about.”
