Foo Fighters have just released ‘Under You’, the second song off their forthcoming album But Here We Are - plus, they’ve announced a free global streaming party for the album!
Just like the lead single ‘Rescued,’ ‘Under You’ is about the band dealing with the loss of their late bandmate and friend Taylor Hawkins, and the grief that has come with it.
The song has an early Foos feel to it, you can hear a little bit of 'Generator' and a little bit of 'Resolve' within the first minute of the song, with emotive lyrics like, “Someone said I’ll never see your face again/ Part of me just can’t believe it’s true/ Pictures of us sharing songs and cigarettes/ This is how I’ll always picture you.”

But Here We Are is set to drop June 2nd, but you can listen to the album before that date with Foo Fighters’ free global listening party, which they announced this morning (18 May.)
Titled Foo Fighters: Preparing Music for Concerts, the free stream will begin Monday 22nd May at 7am, and promises to feature debut performances of new songs, behind the scenes footage, and “a few surprises.”
Since Monday morning is a bit of a niggly time for us in NZ, they’re also making the stream available to re-watch until next Thursday (May 25) at 7 am.
The band said the forthcoming album is a “brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year,” a press release states.
“But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family.
“Courageous, damaged and unflinchingly authentic, But Here We Are opens with newly released lead single 'Rescued,' the first of 10 songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between."
We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.
