During a recent interview with Q Magazine, Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl shed some light on the band's upcoming album, which Grohl says the band recorded in a garage.
Dave Grohl has revealed a few new details about the Foo Fighters’ forthcoming seventh studio album. During a recent interview with Q magazine the rocker explained why he chose to reconnect with former Nirvana producer Butch Vig and why they recorded in Grohl’s garage. “In my hotel room in Perth, Australia, on a Them Crooked Vultures tour, it all came to me. I was sitting writing a new song and I thought, ‘OK, we should make a documentary about the recording of this new album and make it a history of the band too,’ he says. ‘Rather than just record the album in the most expensive studio with the most state-of-the-art equipment, what if Butch and I were to get back together after 20 years and dust off the tape machines and put them in my garage?’ I literally backed the minivan out of the garage, pulled the lawnmower out, put a drum set in it and set up mics. We soundproofed the garage door so that my neighbors wouldn’t call the f*****g cops.” Grohl also enlisted former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic for a track called “I Should Have Known.” The album is due out next year.
