Foo Fighters have premiered the video for “Shame Shame,” the lead single from the band’s upcoming 10th album, Medicine at Midnight.

The clip, which is streaming now on YouTube, stars frontman Dave Grohl dragging a broken guitar slowly across the ground as he trudges toward a coffin on fire. In between, we see shots of an interpretive dance performed by Kingsman and Star Trek Beyond actress Sofia Boutella.

Medicine at Midnight is the follow-up to 2017’s Concrete and Gold. It’s due out February 5, 2021.

For more Foo, you can watch the band’s newly announced livestream concert, airing from the Roxy in Los Angeles this Saturday, November 14, at 8 p.m. ET. Visit FooFighters.co/Roxy for ticket info.

Meanwhile, in addition to the upcoming new Foos music, we’ll also be getting a new song written by Grohl in collaboration with Nandi Bushell.

The 10-year-old viral musical prodigy has been battling Grohl in an epic drum-off over the last few months, which has featured each party writing an original song about the other. In a virtual conversation published by The New York Times, the pair revealed they plan to write a new song together, and perform it in Bushell’s native U.K., as soon as COVID-19 allows it.

“It has to be at the end of the set because you’re going to steal the show,” Grohl said.

Grohl added that he’s still thinking of a way to respond to Bushell’s last move in the drum-off: an original song called “Rock and Grohl — The Epic Battle.”

“I had an idea for how to respond to your last song, but I haven’t done it yet,” Grohl said. “It’s a big project. I don’t want to give it away, but it’s a good one.”
