FOO FIGHTERS guitarist Chris Shiflett has released a stream of his new solo single titled This Ol’ World and announced a European tour.

The track will feature on Shiflett’s upcoming solo album, details of which will be revealed in the near future.

Speaking with NME, the guitarist says he wrote the song as a reaction to US President Trump taking office in 2016 and the current political climate in Europe – specifically the UK’s exit from the European Union.

His as-yet-untitled solo album will be his first since the country-inspired West Coast Town, with Shiflett adding that the new record will contain more “rock,” and adds: "This new one definitely has crunchier guitar tones.”
