Foo Fighters are recording their new album in multiple studios, with Steve Albini and Butch Vig
A few weeks ago, the question was asked, “Are Foo Fighters recording their new album in 12 different studios?” It would appear the answer is now a definitive yes.
Although not officially confirmed, Reddit points to a Facebook post that reports of new songs recorded by Dave Grohl & Co. at Washington D.C.’s Inner Ear Studios, Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, and Butch Vig’s 606 Studios in Los Angeles.
There’s even photographic evidence to prove it. Grohl can be seen online in a photo with DC musician Pete Stahl outside Inner Eat Studios on Sunday. This would also explain why Grohl was randomly riding a Chicago subway last month.
This juicy bit of news certainly goes hand-in-hand with the previously reported tweet by Twitter fan account FooArchive. Back in January, the user posted a scan of a section from Billboard’s “Over Heard” rumors column, which said “an insider” had told the magazine Grohl “is scouting iconic studios in 12 cities” for the next Foo album.
So yes, it would appear that Grohl’s racking up the SkyMiles while recording the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2011′s Wasting Light. Whether or not it’s “a way that no-one’s ever done before,” well, that’s up for us to discern once it finally comes out.
