Foo Fighters announce Songs From the Laundry Room, containing early demos, unreleased music

Record Store Day 10-inch collects Dave Grohl solo demos, a cover, and brand new song

Foo Fighters Record Store Day

    The full list of this year’s Record Store Day releases has been revealed, and it’s jam-packed with goodies for music and vinyl lovers. One especially interesting treat? A release from the Record Store Day 2015 Ambassador himself, Dave Grohl.

    Foo Fighters are set to issue Songs From the Laundry Room, a 10-inch which features demos of “Alone + Easy Target” and “Big Me”, a cover of Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America”, and a previously unreleased track called “Empty Handed”. That’s the artwork above.

    The four-track collection was recorded at Barrett Jones’ Laundry Room Studios in Seattle, Washington. Both “Alone + Easy Target” and “Big Me” demos — early versions of songs that would eventually appear on the band’s self-titled debut album — date back to 1991-1993 and take the form of Grohl solo recordings, according to the fansite Foo Fighters Live.


    Though there are few details on new track “Empty Handed”, it was believed to have been featured briefly during the Seattle episode of the Foos’ HBO docuseries, Sonic Highways. As for the “Kids in America”, a short preview can be heard during the closing credits of another episode. Check out that clip below, followed by the Songs From the Laundry Room tracklist.
