For the first time in 18 years, the mighty Faith No More return with new music. “Motherfucker” serves as the lead single to the band’s upcoming album and will be released on limited-edition 7-inch vinyl for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 28th. In anticipation, the song is streaming below.

According to Rolling Stone, “Motherfucker” was self-produced by bassist Bill Gould, recorded in the band’s Oakland, California rehearsal space, and encapsulates the overall mindset of the band in 2014. “It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability,” Gould told Rolling Stone. “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.”

Faith No More’s as-yet-untitled LP is due out next April via their own imprint, Reclamation Records.
