We’re getting some new details on the forthcoming Foo Fighters album courtesy of Dave Grohl. According to the front man the record will include collaborations with Gary Clark Jr., Zac Brown, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and Eagles member Joe Walsh.
Grohl says that the goal for the album is to make stadium anthems that startle instead of just "banging out these big choruses, because that's what we do, we're banging them out in the middle of instrumental sections that will take you by surprise," he says. "The music is a progression or an evolution, for sure, but it's a Foo Fighters record. As we were coming down from the success of the last record, I thought, 'Now we have license to get weird. If we wanted, we could make some crazy, bleak Radiohead record and freak everyone out. Then I thought, 'F- that.' "
We’ll see how it all shakes out when the disc drops this fall.
