Foo Fighters’ Next Album Halfway Done, According to Producer Butch Vig
We’ve been hearing about the status of the Foo Fighters’ next album for some time. At one point, an Instagram photo of master tapes implied that the band was done recording. And, in 2013, Dave Grohl mentioned the release would come out at some point in 2014.
However, it doesn’t appear that the band is as far along as they’ve previously implied. Producer Butch Vig, who worked with the Foo Fighters on 2011’s Wasting Light, spoke with Kerrang recently and revealed the status of the album.
Vig went onto talk about new recording processes – which jives with Grohl’s previous statements about the band doing something completely new. He said: "We've been recording at some different locations, but we're almost halfway done with the recording and it's going well. It sounds different — we've thrown a few things into the mix, in the recording process, that are going to give the record a different sound and a different feel. It's been a challenge, but it's also been exciting."
So we’ll see how soon the album comes out.
The Foo Fighters went on a hiatus back in 2012, so their last record was Wasting Light. The album came out on RCA to peak at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and produced six singles: “Rope,” “White Limo,” “Walk,” “Arlandria,” “These Days,” and “Bridge Burning.”
