The Foo Fighters have released a new EP, Saint Cecilia, and it's available now for free in Google Play. This EP, which comes as quite a surprise, is in remembrance and honor of those who were affected by the Paris attacks. The new songs have been in the works for a few months, but with the recent events they took on a new meaning. In a letter to fans Dave Grohl, the bands frontman said:
Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.
To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.
