Von Anfang an war die neue EP dem Leben und der Musik gewidmet. Der Gedanke spitzte sich nach den Anschlägen vom 13. November in Paris schließlich zu und Foo Fighters entschlossen sich, SAINT CECILIA für jeden Menschen frei zugänglich zu machen. Die Band hoffte damit, ein wenig Licht in die aktuelle Dunkelheit zu bringen. Den Link zum Gratis-Download findet ihr unten!
Das Statement von Frontmann Dave Grohl zu dem Entschluss, SAINT CECILIA gratis anzubieten, im Wortlaut:
The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.
Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.
To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.
