Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins has let some details slip on the progress of the band’s next album. Hawkins says that band front-man Dave Grohl is “working overtime” on ideas for new material.
Hawkins spoke to Billboard and revealed that work has begun on the follow up to the band’s 2011 hit album, ‘Wasting Light’, hinting that the new album could be a concept album.
Saying, ” We’re getting started. 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 went on to say that he thinks Foo Fighters have yet to make their defining 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 f****** kill yourself or it’s not gonna be any good,” Hawkins said.
