Faith No More "Motherfucker"

Faith No More "Motherfucker"
As previously reported, Faith No More have a new 7-inch landing next week as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event. You won't have to wait any longer to hear the single's "Motherfucker," though, as the song has gone up online as an audio stream.

The first song to be released from the group since 1997, "Motherfucker" takes on properties of the FNM of old, whether it be Mike Patton's The Real Thing rap cadence, or the way the vocalist can easily turn out soaring vocal melodies to gruff and grizzly growls targeting the "motherfucker" that tricked them in their youth. The music is likewise epic, evolving from spacious and sinister piano lines into a grand rock escapade.

"It feels apt that the first track we're releasing is 'Motherfucker,' a song about accountability," the band's Roddy Bottum said in a statement [viaRolling Stone]. "Basically we've created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we're releasing it on our own label. It's a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondageā€¦ y'know, stuff like that."

"Motherfucker" arrives on vinyl November 28, with a digital release pegged for December 9. The band also have a new album due next April via Ipecac Recordings.
