Foo Fighters release their Grammy winning 6th album on September 25, 2007. It’s half rock and half acoustic.
We haven’t been ready to write a record like this until now. I know that Dave wouldn’t have been comfortable putting violins on a song before. But for whatever reasons, it just felt like the right time to explore those things now. The last record, obviously, was half heavy stuff, half acoustic songs. It really was like two sides of the coin. It sounds obvious, but this time around we weren’t afraid of incorporating everything into one song if it felt right.”Taylor Hawkins
