In celebration of Dave Grohl’s 52nd birthday, Foo Fighters have revealed another track ‘Waiting on a War’, lifted from forthcoming album ‘Medicine at Midnight’.
Recounting the moment that inspired the song the frontman said, “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 realized 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.
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.”
