Foo Fighters have dropped a new single, “Waiting on a War,” from their upcoming album, Medicine at Midnight, which is due out February 5.
“I’ve been waiting on a war since I was young/ Since I was a little boy with a toy gun/ Never really wanted to be number one/ Just wanted to love everyone,” go the lyrics of the mostly acoustic song.
“Waiting on a War” is the third song to be released from Medicine at Midnight, following “No Son of Mine” and “Shame Shame.” Medicine at Midnight is the Foo Fighters’ 10th studio album and follows their 2017 album, Concrete and Gold.
Frontman Dave Grohl said that the song was inspired by a conversation with his daughter Harper.
“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,” Grohl said in a statement.
He added, “Every day 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. T his song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does.”
