Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl has revealed that he wants to record the band's next album in outer space.

The frontman, who confirmed in December 2011 that they would be hitting the studio to work on a new album this year, told MTV that he had been struck by intergalactic inspiration when thinking about the next LP.

He said:

We have an idea. It's kind of a really big idea. [We're going to record it] in space. To tape. An analogue moonshot.


Foo Fighters released their last album 'Wasting Light' in April last year. The LP was recorded with legendary producer Butch Vig and also featured Grohl's ex-Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic.

Grohl also discussed his forthcoming documentary on Sound City Studios and hinted that there could be an accompanying soundtrack album in the pipeline, too.

He has spent the last few months making the film, which pays tribute to the studio complex where countless classic albums including Nirvana's 'Nevermind', Slipknot's 'Iowa', Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' and Rage Against The Machine's self-titled effort were recorded.

For the film, Grohl has sourced contributions from the likes of Nine Inch Nails' maestro Trent Reznor, Tom Petty, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, and Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme

"We released a teaser trailer ... there may be an album that accompanies [it]," he said. "I recorded a lot of songs with a lot of people in the past couple months. There used to be a recording studio called Sound City that was in the San Fernando Valley. Nirvana recorded there in 1991. It was this really beautiful dump in the middle of a warehouse district. A lot of great records were made there."

There are as yet no details on when the documentary and its accompanying soundtrack will be released. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the trailer.
