Foo Fighters have released “Waiting on a War”, the third song taken from the bands’ upcoming album Medicine at Midnight.
Dave Grohl said of the song:
“As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington DC, I was always afraid of war. I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980s and my proximity to the Nation’s Capitol. My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.
Last fall, as I was driving my 11-year-old daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, “Daddy, is there going to be a war?” My heart sank in my chest as I looked into her innocent eyes because I realized that she was now living under that same dark cloud of a hopeless future that I had felt 40 years ago.
I wrote “Waiting On a War” that day.
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.
This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does.”
