It’s Friday, and that means a new Foo Fighters song is upon us.
Ahead of the Austin-themed episode of their HBO docu-series Sonic Highways we have “What Did I Do?/God As My Witness,” an epic throwback rocker featuring Austin MVP Gary Clark, Jr.
Recorded in the music (and literal) capital of Texas, “What Did I Do?” is a driving, inviting rocker with a tasty riff, while “God As My Witness” is an anthemic (borderline Meat Loaf operatic) song that builds to a massive peak before quickly fading out.
Sonic Highways, the band’s eighth album, features eight songs, all of them recorded in (and inspired by) a different music-centric city. The Foos’ last album, Wasted Light, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Here’s the Sonic Highways tracklist:
1. Something From Nothing (Listen)
2. The Feast and The Famine (Listen)
3. Congregation (Listen)
4. What Did I Do?/God As My Witness (Above)
6. In The Clear
8. I Am A River
