Foo Fighters have a new track out on recorded special for a Planned Parenthood compilation

Foo Fighters fans recently got a big package of new music from the band in the form of a new album, “Concrete and Gold,” which dropped last month.

That said, the guys have just unleashed another fresh track, this one named “Soldier,” and the tune is currently available for digital download. It’s a raw, rockin’ Foos number, as expected.

Dave Grohl and the guys recorded “Soldier” specifically for a compilation album out to benefit Planned Parenthood. The set, called “7-inches for Planned Parenthood,” also features songs by Bjork, Chvrches, Sleater-Kinney, John Legend, Common, Feist, St. Vincent and Mary J Blige.

A selection of comedians also contribute to the release, including Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and Jenny Slate.

The compilation “7-inches for Planned Parenthood” is currently available digitally. For those who prefer wax, it will arrive as a vinyl box set on Nov. 17.

In other news, Foo Fighters are currently on the road, touring venues throughout North America to promote “Concrete and Gold.” The album entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1 upon its release last month.
