Dave Grohl compares upcoming Foo Fighters album to David Bowie's 'Let's Dance'

Music 11/05/2020

Dave Grohl confirmed Foo Fighters' upcoming album was complete back in February, but just recently he's revealed some more details about what fans can expect from it. 

Grohl and his mum Virginia appeared on LA radio station ALT 98.7 in the weekend, for a Mother's Day questions and answers session. When asked about the upcoming album, Grohl said he can't wait for people to hear it. 

“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s kind of like a dance record, but not an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove.

To me, it’s our David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ record. That’s what we wanted to make, we wanted to make this really up, fun record.”

We're interested to see what the album will sound like, but there's no set release date yet and may not be any time soon due to the craziness of the current pandemic. 

Foo Fighter's upcoming album isn't the only topic they covered during the Q&A session. Virginia revealed that a documentary of her book "Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars" is also in the pipeline. 

In the 26 minute video they also chat about Grohl growing up, Post Malone's Nirvana tribute concert, and more. 

It's a good watch if you're a fan of Grohl and you have some time to kill. Watch it above.
