Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett released his new single, ‘This Ol’ World’ earlier this month, and has now announced he’ll be releasing his new solo album, ‘Hard Lessons’, on June 21. The album, produced by Grammy Award winner Dave Cobb, features ten brand new songs, including the single, ‘Welcome To Your First Heartache’. The album is available to pre-order now and will be released through East Beach Records & Tapes/Thirty Tigers.
“I remember one night between Foo Fighters gigs last year I went out for dinner with Dave 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.” Chris 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.”
