Dass die Foo Fighters mit “Saint Cecilia” heute eine Ep zum freien Download auf ihrer Webseite anbieten, war schon länger bekannt. Nicht aber, dass diese EP den Opfern der Anschläge von Paris gewidmet sein würde.
Dave Grohl schreibt dazu:
The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.
Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.
To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.
