The Foo Fighters' next album is in motion, but don't expect to pry too many details from the lips of drummer Taylor Hawkins.
"We're getting started," Hawkins tells Billboard about the follow-up to 2011's "Wasting Light," the Foos' second consecutive No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200. "We're getting our ideas together. Dave (Grohl) has his brain working overtime, like usual, and he's got a lot of great ideas, both musically and conceptually -- none that I can speak of at this moment, but it's gonna be great. It's gonna be cool."
During this year's South By Southwest Music + Media Conference, Grohl -- who was in Austin, Texas with his Sound City Players and "Sound City: Real To Real" documentary -- said that he has "a crazy idea of what I want to do with the next record and how we record it...It won't be a conventional record." And Hawkins says the Foos feel a collective pressure for the next effort to be as noteworthy as its predecessors.
