He also gives a behind-the-scenes look into producing the Foos' 2014 album/HBO series 'Sonic Highways.'
Foo Fighters recently placed a mysterious clock on their website. Is it counting down to their next album? A second edition of their HBO series/2014 album Sonic Highways, perhaps? The producer behind that album (and a few others you might’ve heard of) stopped by Billboard’s New York office for a fascinating talk on a long life in rock ’n roll… along with some hints for the future.
“I think there is going to be a Sonic Highways II,” Butch Vig tells host Chris Payne. “But it’s still in discussions right now. I know Dave [Grohl] and HBO are both really want to do it, but it’s going to be different. It’s not going to be the same exact format as the last album… if it happens, it’ll probably happen next summer.”
