Faith No More are now streaming the single “Motherf**ker,” via Rolling Stone. The song is the first new music to come from the Bay Area band since 1997’s Album of the Year.
“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherf**ker,’ a song about accountability,” explained Roddy Bottum. “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, bondage… y’know, stuff like that.”
“Motherf**ker” will be available as a limited edition seven-inch on Record Store Day’s Black Friday event (Nov. 28) and as a digital release on Dec. 9 (pre-order via iTunes – Click Here). The B-side of the physical release is a remix of the track by JG Thirlwell.
Faith No More is currently working on a full-length album to be released in April via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings.
