Foo Fighters debut new song “The Sky is a Neighborhood” at acoustic show — watch

Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins unveil the new song at an acoustic benefit show

With the promise of a new record on the horizon, Foo Fighters are gearing up for a summer tour that will see them hit festivals around the world. It seems probable they’ll be teasing new material at these upcoming shows, as they did so during their surprise UK gig back in February, and again last night at San Francisco’s Fillmore.

Dave Grohl was performing as part of Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield’s annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit show when he welcomed drummer Taylor Hawkins onstage. Together with a pianist, they debuted a new Foo Fighters song called “The Sky is a Neighborhood”. “I figured on the way up here, I thought, fuck it, let’s play a new song,” Grohl said by way of introduction. “Let’s do something nobody’s heard. Never played this song in front of anybody.”
