At Long Last, Foo Fighters Announce New Album ‘But Here We Are’ and Release Lead Single ‘Rescued’

We’ve been hoping for it. We prepared ourselves for it for over a year now. Well, it’s finally here.

Foo Fighters have released their new single, “Rescued,” and announced an upcoming album by the name of But Here We Are, set to release on June 2nd.

Taylor Hawkins, the Foo’s longtime drummer, tragically passed away in March of 2022. The loss cast an overwhelming sadness over not only the band, not only the fans, not only the rock genre, but music as a whole. There was a ton of speculation on if the band would continue in the months following, but Foo Fighters came out and said they will play on. We don’t know who their new drummer will be permanently. Dave Grohl is obviously more than capable of holding down the kit in studio, but it is still not official on who will take the drum throne during live shows. Regardless, there will be big shoes to fill.

As for their new song, “Rescued,” it is truly a fantastic release. As we expected, this being their first drop since the death of Hawkins, it is very emotional and gives the listener a lot of raw feelings delivered by the lyrics. Grohl is an artist, so one could draw the conclusion that he had no choice but to move on and show tribute through song. Instrumentally and sonically, this is Foo to the core. They haven’t skipped a beat in quality, and this gets us hyped up for the album to come.

Foo Fighters revealed the track list to the upcoming But Here We Are:

Rescued 

Under You 

Hearing Voices 

But Here We Are 

The Glass 

Nothing At All 

Show Me How 

Beyond Me 

The Teacher 

Rest 

There’s no doubt that fans are ready for new music and Foo Fighters have always been consistent with fantastic records. Get excited, folks.

From Foo Fighters’ website:

“Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with But Here We Are, out June 2 on Roswell Records/RCA Records.

A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year, 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.

Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of the band’s new life. Sonically channeling the naiveté of Foo Fighters’ 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.”
