Foo Fighters Planning for 2014 Album Release
Earlier this year, as Dave Grohl went about promoting documentary Sound City: Reel to Reel, he revealed the Foo Fighters planned to put together a follow-up to Wasting Light. At the time, the release was described as “not conventional.”
From that point, it looks like the band has been working together. In a interview with XFM out on August 16, the former Nirvana drummer mentioned the release is entirely written, but as it looks like recording has yet to begin, the actual album is slated for 2014.
He said: "Well, I'll tell you, we have been in our studio writing and in the past few weeks we've written an album and we are going to make this album in a way that no-one's ever done before and we're pretty excited about it. It's a little ways off - it's not ready to happen right now but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question. It's going to be great, I can't wait."
A sound desk from the original Sound City Studios, Grohl mentioned in the interview, was used to record Wasting Light. Their seventh studio album, out in 2011, was recorded entirely with analog equipment and, upon release, received critical acclaim, from positive reviews to multiple Grammy nominations. The release produced five singles, “Rope,” “Walk,” “Arlandria,” “These Days,” and “Bridge Burning,” and was certified gold or higher in 11 countries.
