Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett’s New Solo Album, ‘Lost At Sea’, Out In October

July 13, 2023
We’ve been lucky, haven’t we? Foo Fighters‘ guitarist Chris Shiflett has been sharing new music with us for the last few months; you’ll find the songs ‘Dead And Gone’, ‘Black Top White Lines’ and the recently released ‘Damage Control’ on his soon-to-be-released (October 20) new solo album, “Lost At Sea”!

Shiftlett worked on “Lost At Sea” with producer and collaborator Jaren Johnston — frontman of the Cadillac Three. He also teamed up with a number of co-writers including Kendell Marvel and Cody Jinks.

Shiflett said, “We wrote a lot of these songs during the lockdown. Then I began making trips to Nashville to work with Jaren. He and I have a lot of overlap, in terms of the music we like. We made a guitar-centric record that encapsulates everything I’ve been listening to over the years, from the most country songs I’ve ever recorded to punk rock and even songs that sound like a California version of The Clash.”

Shiflett added, “All the other tunes were written in the months leading up to recording, but when Jaren and I were sorting out which songs to do he mentioned something about The Clash and I remembered this old one I’d demoed about 15 years prior. I love that the musical inspiration on this one was late-stage Clash but we wound up layering it with banjos and what-not. Definitely takes it somewhere else. Ska-mericana? There’s nothing better than when influences converge taking you places you never expected.”
