Foo Fighters Cover Arcade Fire on Surprise New EP 01070725
Foo Fighters released a surprise EP called 01070725 on September 27. It’s the latest in a line of recent memorably-titled EPs that began with 00950025 back in July. Since then, they’ve released 00111125 – Live in London, 00070725 Live at Studio 606, and 00050525, timed for last week’s ill-fated “Area 51 raid.” The new EPs are tied to the upcoming 25th anniversary of the band’s eponymous debut album, which is still a good nine months away.
Of the newest EP’s five songs, two are covers: “Keep the Car Running – Live at BBC Radio 1’s Six Weeks of Summer” (Arcade Fire), and “Holiday In Cambodia – Live from the 2007 MTV Music Awards” (Dead Kennedys). “If Ever” was originally released as a B-side for “The Pretender,” from the band’s 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace; the EP also includes a demo version of “Come Alive,” from that same album, and “Seda,” a bonus track.
