Foo Fighters “officially done” recording album
NEW YORK (Billboard) ñ The Foo Fighters have finished work on their seventh studio album, according to a post on the group’s Twitter account Tuesday.
“Ladies and gentlemen … we are officially done. Champagne, anyone?,” said the post, which was accompanied by a shot of frontman Dave Grohl holding a bottle of bubbly alongside band and crew.
The as-yet-untitled 11-song album, due out in the spring via RCA Records, marks the follow-up to 2007’s “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.” Four new songs — “Back + Forth,” “White Limo,” “Dear Rosemary” and “These Days” — were previewed during a secret show in Los Angeles last month.
Grohl’s former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic appears on the track “I Should Have Known,” while Husker Du/Sugar frontman Bob Mold guests on “Dear Rosemary.” Grohl has described the album as the band’s “most rocking record yet.”
The Foo Fighters will return to the stage May 27 at the Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Wash. The group will then play headlining and festival dates in Europe through early July.
