Foo Fighters will release their eighth studio album this fall
It’s official: Foo Fighters are recording a new album, and the fresh tunes will arrive this fall. In a press release sent out today (May 15), the band stated that the upcoming album is associated with the new, as-yet untitled HBO series that Dave Grohl is producing.
Foo Fighters recorded each of the songs on the album in a different city, with “every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process,” according to the release.
The release added, “Each episode delves into the singular regional identity of each city-how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns-ultimately celebrating their common bond: Every artist that appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with the universal dreams of making music and making it big.”
The studios where the album was recorded are Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York.
According to the release, the series will premiere “on the eve of Foo Fighters’ 20th anniversary.” That means to expect the show to start airing this October, which marks the 20th anniversary of Dave Grohl recording the Foos’ first tracks.
