Following the premiere of Foo Fighters‘ “Waiting on a War,” on Thursday, the band performed the track live for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that same night.
“Waiting on a War” is the third cut to be released from the band’s Medicine at Midnight album, following “No Son of Mine” and lead single “Shame Shame.” The whole album arrives February 5.
The TV peremiere coincided with Dave Grohl‘s 52nd birthday, and before to the performance, Kimmel checked in with the Foo Fighters frontman to wish him a happy birthday and see how he was holding up while quarantining amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Doing alright,” but “Getting old,” Grohl replied.
Next, Dave was asked to open up a gift that Jimmy had sent him — a book of birthday coupons offering everything from a back rub to a Lady and the Tramp-style spaghetti dinner.
“I do want to say, I started working on these after your last birthday, before the pandemic, so keep that in mind when you go through them,” explained Kimmel.
