Good morning. In case you missed your music news, we have you covered. Here’s what happened yesterday:

Dave Grohl thanked fans for their support in a statement released on the Foo Fighters’ social media.

Jenny Lewis’ new album is out Friday, but beforehand, she released a video for “Psychos.” King Krule’s will also be released this week. Get a listen to its final offering. Coi Leray dropped a new video for “Bops.”

Celebrated pianist George Winston, who inadvertently helped popularize the new age music genre through his 1980s Windham Hill Records releases, died at the age of 73.

Here’s the first single. Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo is releasing his first album under his own name.

It was a big day for tour announcements, as Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, S.G. Goodman, and Wilco are hitting the road later this year. The Darkness is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Permission To Land with a North American tour this fall. 311 will be hitting the road with AWOLNATION and Blame My Youth for a fall tour.
