Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl told Los Angeles radio station Alt 98.7 that the band's new album is “like our David Bowie's Let's Dance record.”
Grohl explained, “It's filled with these anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs . . . it's almost like a dance record in a weird way — not an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It's got groove, man. To me, it's like our David Bowie's Let's Dance record. That's what we wanted to make, 'cause we were, like, 'Let's make this really up, fun record.”
Grohl told us a while back that it's important to him to change things on each new LP: “The best thing about being in a band and making music is doing as many things as possible and exploring as many different musical regions as you can get your hands into. And it's important for every artist to explore that or just take a stab at it. Records should be things that are important to the artists as well as the people.”
The title and the release date of the new Foos album have yet to be announced, pending the return of normal life in the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic. The band has already put its spring and summer tour plans on hold, including a festival on the Washington D.C. area on July 4th to celebrate the band's 25th anniversary.
