Dave Grohl joined the jazz collective Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue for a performance “In Bloom,” classic Nirvana song. It was the second time he played this tune since the end of the band after Cobains’s death in 1994.
Last album Concrete and Gold is the ninth studio album by American rock band Foo Fighters. It was produced by Greg Kurstin and released worldwide on September 15, 2017, through RCA Records.Described by the band as an album where “hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities collide”, Concrete and Gold concerns the future of the United States from the viewpoint of the band’s frontman and lead songwriter Dave Grohl, with the heated atmosphere of the 2016 elections and the presidency of Donald Trump cited as major influences by Grohl. Juxtapositions serve as a common motif in both the album’s lyrical and musical composition, with Grohl further describing the album’s overall theme as “hope and desperation”.
Concrete and Gold was received positively by music critics, who praised the album’s more expansive feel, both musically and lyrically. Modest criticism was aimed at the perceived lack of musical deviation from the band’s previous albums.
The album became the band’s second to debut at number one on the Billboard 200, moving 127,000 album-equivalent units and selling 120,000 copies in its first week in the United States.
