Foo Fighters drop fifth surprise EP of the year
Foo Fighters have released their fifth surprise numbered EP of the year. The latest, titled 02050525, features covers of The Passions and Jawbreaker as well as deep cuts, B-sides and demos pulled from the band’s sessions from 2005’s In Your Honor double LP.
The covers are the Passions’ 1981 one-hit wonder, “I’m In Love With A German Film Star,” as well as a take on Jawbreaker’s 1992 track “Kiss The Bottle,” featuring guitarist Chris Shiflett on lead vocals.
The collection also features the deep cut “FFL (Fat F**king Lie),” the rare studio version of “Skin And Bones” and a demo of the single “DOA.” All three of those tracks were originally released on the 2005 EP Five Songs And A Cover — a B-side collection from the In Your Honor sessions that was exclusively sold in Best Buy stores.
The effort is rounded out by “Spill,” originally released as the B-side to the classic Foo Fighters hit “Best Of You.”
The new EP follows up last month’s 01020225, which featured a mix of studio and live cuts. That was preceded by 01070725, a mixture of live cuts, demos and familiar Foos numbers that arrived in late September, a live effort earlier that month called 00050525 Live in Roswell, and another live EP last July titled 00950025.
The string of EPs may be related to a yet-to-be-revealed celebration of the Foos’ upcoming 25th anniversary. In the meantime, the band is planning to release a new album next year. Its last full-length record, Concrete And Gold, was released in 2017.
