“Then it was months and months of attempting to determine after we would launch it. ‘OK, will we simply put it out now?’ ‘No, let’s wait. Possibly we’ll see what occurs.’ A month later, ‘Can we put it out now?’ ‘No, let’s wait.’”
He continued: “So, six or seven months glided by, and I’m, like: ‘We make this music for folks to listen to. We don’t simply make it in order that we are able to go hit the highway. We write these songs so folks can get pleasure from them and sing alongside, whether or not it’s of their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing round, singing the choruses’.
“So, I used to be, like, proper now, greater than ever, folks want one thing to carry their spirits, one thing to present them some feeling of reduction or escape. I used to be, like: ‘We’ve gotta put it out. Let’s put it out proper now.’
“I don’t know after we’re gonna hit the highway, however we have to give the music to the folks, ’trigger that’s why we make it.”
Grohl lately confirmed that not all of ‘Medicine At Midnight’ will sound like the album’s lead single ‘Shame Shame’, which was launched final month.
