The approximately eight-second Vine clip — which shows the song being played on vinyl — doesn’t include any of frontman Dave Grohl’s powerful vocals, but it does feature some pretty hard rocking guitar and drums. Moczydlowsky gave it the thumbs up on Twitter.
“Holy guitars, Batman! New @foofighters record makes ’em sound 100 feet tall,” the Twitter executive tweeted on Aug. 29.

Produced by Butch Vig and the Foo Fighters, Sonic Highways’ eight songs were recorded separately in eight different U.S. cities, and the vinyl edition of the album will come in an assortment for nine different covers, with eight variants for each the cities in which the Foos spent time. The Sonic Highways CD and 180 gram vinyl LP are currently available for pre-order.
“This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it,” Grohl said in a press statement. “I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound’.”
Sonic Highways will be released worldwide on Nov. 10 through Roswell Records/RCA Records. Sonic Highways is also the name of the eight-episode HBO series chronicling the road-trippin’ creation of the album, which will premiere on Oct. 17. Watch the trailer below.
