Foo Fighters are planning on releasing their rare ‘Songs From The Laundry Room’ EP as a mainstream release.

‘Songs From The Laundry Room’ is a four track E.P. originally released as a 10-inch vinyl for Record Store Day this year.

The E.P. featuring Foo Fighters cover of Kim Wilde’s ‘Kids In America’ as well as the previously unreleased ‘Empty Handed’.

‘Alone + Easy Target’ was recorded as a demo by Grohl and originally pitched to Nirvana. Nirvana would jam on the song during soundchecks for the 1991 European tour. Grohl re-recorded the song in 1995 for the first Foo Fighters album.

‘Big Me’ was eventually released as a Foo Fighters song and was the fourth single from the debut album. Grohl wrote it when he was a member of Nirvana and, like ‘Alone + Easy Target’ had played it to Kurt Cobain

Foo Fighters Songs From The Laundry RoomThe tracks on ‘Songs From The Laundry Room’ are:

Alone + Easy Target (recorded February 18, 1991)
Big Me (recorded March 1994)
Kids In America (recorded on February 16, 1991)
Empty Handed (recorded in 1992)

All songs except ‘Kids In America’ where written by Dave Grohl.
