Grohl says of the new track, "Last fall, as I was driving my daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, "Daddy, is there going to be a war?" My heart sank as I realised that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago. I wrote "Waiting On A War" that day."
He adds, "Everyday waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do. This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does."
Medicine At Midnight will follow their 2017 LP Concrete and Gold. The nine-track album is produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark "Spike" Stent.
