Foo Fighters / Medicine at Midnight

Tenth studio album coming early next year

Foo Fighters / Medicine at Midnight new album

Foo Fighters will release a new album, Medicine at Midnight in February.

The band’s tenth studio long-player was planned for this year, but ultimately was pushed back to early 2021 due to the pandemic.

Medicine at Midnight features nine new songs and has an old-school running time of just 37 minutes. The album has been produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters (who are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee).

You can preview the new single ‘Shame Shame’, above. Medicine at Midnight will be available on CD, 140g black vinyl and a ‘bricks and mortar’ indie exclusive blue vinyl edition. Also, FNAC in France have an orange vinyl available.

The album will be released on 5 February 2021, via RCA.

Saw the Foos last night live at the Roxy. The new songs translate very well to live performance, and the tracks themselves are strong. Actually looking forward to this release.

Cover looks very much like Garbage – Bleed Like Me, which Dave Grohl also played on.

Hmm, the Shame, Shame track has a bit of a Bowie feel to it rather than typical Foo’s but that’s not a bad thing imo. As to the sleeve? Well it’s miles better than the Genesis Duke one, not that that’s a huge boast.

140gr… :(


I quite like the cover :)
What I really want is a boxset of their vinyl and a collection of their bsides


Any info about the Japan cd?? They say: Remixes are included!?!?


I’m bonkers for the Foo Fighters and the elegant appearance of their previous albums, so I don’t know what to make of this new album. The surprisingly crass cover artwork for “Medicine at Midnight” makes me think Elvis Costello challenged Dave Grohl to come up with an even uglier looking album cover than “Hey Clockface.”


Is that a Genesis cover??


Grohl: “Hey guys, GUYS! I have an idea. Let’s do the cover in the same time it take to listen to the record!”

The Others: “Umm…”

Grohl: “Great! I KNEW you’d be into it! Three! Two! One! GO!”

Paul, have you seen the new Tori Amos Christmastide EP? Signed editions etc, looks like something for your readers…



There’s an official store purple smoke vinyl too.


Hmmm, sounds like a clue to when to take the vaccine


What an ugly cover…
Think I read an article in Mojo a few months back about the making of this record was in a haunted house or something?

The strings in the chorus are the best thing about the song. The simple riff used throughout doesn’t propell things enough.

Still, he’s the “nicest man in rawk” so I’m sure it’ll all go swell.
