From Planet Rock.
Helmed by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s fabled RCA Studio A, the Foo Fighters guitarist’s album boasts 10 new songs – including the Planet Rock playlisted single ‘This Ol’ Town’ – and newly premiered track ‘Welcome To Your First Heartache’.
‘Hard Lessons’ album features Chris Shiflett on electric guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar as well as an all-star collection of studio musicians.
They include Chris Powell (Brent Cobb, Jamey Johnson) on drums and percussion, Brian Allen (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) on bass, Michael Webb (Ashley Monroe, Eli Young Band) on keyboards and Paul Franklin (Vince Gill, Dire Straits) on pedal steel and Kristen Rogers (Anderson East, Lori McKenna) on harmony vocals.
Elsewhere, there is a duet with Elizabeth Cook on the track ‘The One You Go Home To’.
Chris says of the album: “I remember one night between Foo Fighters gigs last year I went out for dinner with Dave (Cobb) to chit chat about making this record. He said he had a vision of me playing through an old Marshall JCM-800. So, when it came time to record, we found one on Craigslist, cranked it up and it was perfect.”
He continues: “I think this record hits a little closer to mixing everywhere I’ve been musically into one big blender and comes out something a little different. Since it was my second time working with Cobb and Co. out there at RCA Studio A, I kind of knew what to expect as far as his process, so I intentionally didn’t overthink or over-demo the songs because I didn’t want to get too stuck on any ideas I brought with me. I couldn’t be more excited about the results.”
