Foo Fighters has just released a new song from their upcoming album production, scheduled to be released on February 5. Just to coincide with Dave Grohl’s birthday, “Waiting On A War” hits the web and on all music platforms like a fist raised in the air in protest against the war and warfare that have plagued the United States for decades.
As explained by the band through their official social networks, this song emerged in response to a dark conversation that Grohl had with his 11-year-old daughter. While they were driving together on the way to school, the girl asked her father if there was going to be a war.
My heart sank when I realized that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago. That day I wrote ‘Waiting On A War’. Every day waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more than that? Is there more to this than just waiting for a war? Because I need more. We all do it.
The song, just over 4 minutes long, reflects on the normalization of war. It tells of a person who since she was little waits for a large-scale conflict to happen, even while playing with toy guns and plastic soldiers.
“This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, like all children.”
“Waiting On A War” is the third single that Foo Fighters releases, prior to the release of their album Medicine at Midnight. The previous contributions of his new production correspond to “Shame Shame” and “No Son of Mine”. Furthermore, the song’s release not only coincides with its vocalist’s 52nd birthday, but also the band’s 25th anniversary.
