Drummer Taylor Hawkins been talking about the new Foo Fighters album, revealing that Dave Grohl is “working overtime” on ideas for new material.
Taylor’s been saying to Billboard that work on the follow-up to the band’s 2011 album ‘Wasting Light’ has begun, and also hinted that it could be a concept album.
“We’re getting started,” Hawkins said, “We’re getting our ideas together. Dave has his brain working overtime, like usual, and he’s got a lot of great ideas, both musically and conceptually, none that I can speak of at this moment, but it’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be cool.”
Hawkins also suggested that he believes Foo Fighters have not yet made their definitive album. “You always want every one of them to be the best one you’ve ever done, and you always think you haven’t done your best one. Although some people may feel we have, I still think we haven’t written our ‘Hotel California’ or our ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ or whatever. Every time you start a record, you have to be, like, ready to fuckin’ kill yourself or it’s not gonna be any good.”
Dave Grohl previously claimed that the next Foo Fighters album will “not be a conventional record”
