Foo Fighters Release First Song Since Death of Taylor Hawkins, ‘Rescued,’ Announce Album

Foo Fighters on Wednesday (April 19) released their first new song since the death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins, announcing a new studio album at the same time. The song is called “Rescued” and the album, out June 2, is called But Here We Are.

Foo Fighters had teased “Rescued” with excerpts of the track in the days leading up to the release. Now,  Foo Fighters fans can hear the whole song, read its lyrics and pre-order the album.

Though there are many rumors, it is still unknown who will assume the drum chair for Hawkins during the performance. Foo Fighters honored Hawkins with star-studded concerts last year in London and Los Angeles. Alison, Hawkins’ wife, and their three children Oliver Shane, Annabelle, and Everleigh are still living.

Foo Fighters fulfilled a promise to fans by announcing shows at the beginning of the year after promising in a statement last year that they would continue playing beyond the drummer’s passing in March 2022 at the age of 50.

“Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward,” the band wrote. “We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again — and we will soon — he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”

Foo Fighters are touring this summer. Get tickets here and see the dates under the song and other album info.
