Dave Grohl has confirmed that the Foo Fighters 10th studio album is finished!
He revealed the news during a chat on the Bill Simmons Podcast (scroll down to hear it on iHeartRadio).
“We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
Grohl also confirmed he’s already onto new things – namely making a new documentary, which will focus on van touring.
“I’ve interviewed everybody… The Beatles toured in a van, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, U2, everybody has had a van,” Grohl said.
“There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge.”
Not gonna lie, we’re already 100% hyped about this doco.
“The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour anecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it,” he explained.
“Why would anyone give up everything, quit their job, leave everything behind, just to chase this dream with no guarantee you’re ever going to make it? And you starve, you bleed, you’re sick, you’re pissed, you get taken to jail and in fights, but you always make it to the next gig. Everyone has the same story, and it’s absolutely the key to success.”
New album, new doco, aww man, 2020 is gonna be a GREAT year for Foo’s fans.
