Update: Foo Fighters have revealed via a press release that the band’s upcoming new album will be out in November.
Foo Fighters‘ forthcoming album currently only boasts eight songs.
However, don’t fret — according to the band, it may also end up the longest LP the Foos has recorded.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, frontman Dave Grohl opened up about the album and what to expect.
“You’ll recognize Foo Fighters in this record but you’ll also be surprised by us,” he said. “We’re doing things that we’ve never done before. And I want to say that it’s only eight songs but I think it might be our longest record because, as I was writing these songs, I had to take a cinematic approach.”
He added: “Like, I couldn’t just write a three-and-a-half-minute long KROQ jingle and film it for the finale of an episode about the history of music in New Orleans, you know? We really had to step up what we do. The music is a progression or an evolution for sure, but it’s a Foo Fighters record.”
While he admitted there could be horns on the record, he asserted that sections of certain songs will take fans by surprise.
