Foo Fighters 'Officially Done' Recording New Album
The Foo Fighters have finished work on their seventh studio album, according to posts from the group's Twitter account (@foofighters). In one photo from yesterday, the group is seen posing in a studio about to pour a bottle of champagne. "Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially done," the post reads.
The as-yet-untitled 11-song album will be out in the spring via RCA. The Dave Grohl-led band played the new songs "Back + Forth," "White Limo," "Dear Rosemary" and "These Days" from it during a secret show in Los Angeles last month. A brief snippet from the studio version of "White Limo" was also posted yesterday on the band's Twitter feed.
As previously reported, Grohl's former Nirvana bandmate appears on the new album track "I Should Have Known," while Husker Du/Sugar frontman Bob Mould guests on "Dear Rosemary." The project was recorded at Grohl's home studio in Los Angeles, produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder.
Grohl has previously described the album as the Foos' "most rocking record yet," and a source who has heard it previously told the Hollywood Reporter that "there's not an acoustic guitar on the whole record."
The Foo Fighters will return to the stage May 27 at the Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Wash. Afterward, the group will play headlining and festival dates in Europe through early July.
