H.E.R. has released a studio “reinterpretation” of Foo Fighters’ “The Glass,” just three weeks after the two artists performed the song together on Saturday Night Live. The new cover — a “solo” studio recording by H.E.R. — is paired with the original Foo Fighters version for a double A-side single, out today.
“The Glass” originally debuted this past June as the fifth single from Foo Fighters’ latest album, But Here We Are. In October, when the band appeared on Saturday Night Live for the ninth time, they performed it with help from H.E.R., who provided vocals and guitar. Now, H.E.R.’s take on the song has arrived, and trades the hard-hitting rock arrangement of the original for a gentler, ethereal soundscape, with reverberating guitars and layered vocal harmonies. Stream it below.
In addition to being available on streaming services, the double A-side single will be offered on a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl, set to drop on December 29th. Pre-orders are ongoing.
But Here We Are was released this past summer on June 2nd, and is the 11th studio album by Foo Fighters. Now, the album has been nominated in three categories for the 2024 Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album, and Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for the track “Rescued.”
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters are booked through the end of 2023 and well into 2024, thanks to their upcoming North American stadium tour, which will feature a fun lineup of openers, including The Hives, The Pretenders, Alex G, L7, Mammoth WVH, and Amyl and The Sniffers. Grab your tickets here.
