Foo Fighters have performed their new track Dirty Water live for the very first time.
It’ll feature on the band’s upcoming album Concrete And Gold which will arrive on September 14 via Columbia Records – and the Foos decided to play the song during their set at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris on Monday night.
Introducing the track, vocalist and guitarist Dave Grohl tells the crowd: “So this is where I stop looking at the setlist and we just start playing songs that we want to play.
“This is a song that we’ve been waiting to play for everybody – nobody’s heard this song yet but we like it and every night before we come onstage, we sit backstage and we play it just because it’s kinda nice.”
Last month, Grohl revealed that Concrete And Gold would feature one of the biggest pop stars in the world and previously said of the follow-up to 2014’s Sonic Highways: “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever.
“To make a gigantic rock record but with producer Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement. Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”
Foo Fighters have several dates remaining on their European tour and also recently announced they would play London’s O2 in September to mark the venue’s 10th anniversary.
