For anyone who has followed music this year, one thing is clear: the Foo Fighters have had a rough 2022.

Perhaps the biggest headline of the year was the death of Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

Well, after playing some shows to honor their fallen compatriot, the band has a bit of good news in store for fans. The legendary rock group has announced a forthcoming greatest hits album called, The Essential Foo Fighters, which is slated to drop later this fall on October 28.

The new album, which will be a physical release only, will include hits like “My Hero,” “Everlong” and “Best of You,” along with 18 more tracks. Fans can check out the tracklist below.

The band announced the news on Twitter, sharing a tweet from Legacy Recordings that read, “‘The Essential Foo Fighters’ is a collection of tracks from the band’s studio albums available on vinyl, CD, and digitally October 28th. @foofighters foofighters.lnk.to/EssentialFF

The new record follows the band’s 2009 Greatest Hits album, as well as the 2021 studio record, Medicine at Midnight. It also marks the first band release since the death of Hawkins in March.

And while the band recently played a tribute concert in London, another is slated for Inglewood, California on September 27.
