Dave Grohl and Co. performed the track with H.E.R together for the first time last month on Saturday Night Live. ‘The Glass’ was the fifth track from Foo Fighters’ latest studio album, ‘But Here We Are’. The double A-side will feature a reinterpretation of the song by the R&B singer as well as the original version seen on the Foo Fighters album.
As per a press release, H.E.R.’s newly recorded solo version of ‘The Glass’ is a “stunning and singular vocal and guitar performance that wrings new sonic and emotional dimensions from the original”.
‘The Glass’ will be available to stream digitally on Friday, November 17. Pre-save the track here. Fans can also pre-order the limited edition 7-vinyl that is set for release on December 29 here.
In a five-star review of ‘But Here We Are’, NME shared that the album “is a beautiful, noisy celebration of brotherhood and a stark, painful exploration of loss. It is messy, gut-wrenching, ambitious and gorgeous, as the remaining members of Foo Fighters push themselves to their limits and beyond. Through it all, ‘But Here We Are’ is an undeniable reminder of the healing, unifying power of music”.
In other Foo Fighters news, the band’s frontman recently joined his daughter Violet Grohl on stage for two songs at a concert by David Bowie‘s pianist Mike Garson.
