Foo Fighters has come back with a surprise attack with their brand new single “Run”. With many bands looking for a new sound for the new millennials, Foo Fighters has chosen to maintain their high-energy rock sound with “Run”, while being over twenty years into their career. People Magazine praised the song for being “a return to full-speed-ahead rock”. Like the best of Foo Fighters, it’s hard and occasionally hilarious. Similarly, “NPR” praised the song for being “an enjoyably ludicrous bit of viral silliness” and concluded the single ‘Run’ is no joke. With eight (and perhaps soon to be nine) albums into his Foo Fighters career, Grohl still wails with the infectiously unhinged force of a kid a third his age.”
A music video for the song was released on the same day. The video features the band performing the song in a nursing home, in make-up making them appear as elderly versions of themselves, and end up inciting a riot amongst other patients and orderlies. Multiple outlets, including Billboard and People magazines, felt the music video was an homage to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, while Team Rock noted its additional similarity to the film Cocoon. The video ends with a brief choreographed dance routine, noted by Variety and ABC News as being similar to the routine done in Michael Jackson‘s video for the song “Thriller“. The video was directed by band frontman Dave Grohl.
The song had first been played live in February 2017.The studio version of the song was released as a single on June 1, 2017, making it the band’s first single since “Saint Cecilia” in 2015.Many music journalists noted the song is expected, but not confirmed, to be off of the band’s upcoming ninth studio album. The single was a surprise release, without any prior indication being made of its existence, other than the band’s vague allusions to working on music over the course of 2017.
