The soundtrack for Dave Grohl's documentary on Sound City Studios, where his former band Nirvana's 'Nevermind' was recorded, is set to be finished this autumn.

Last week, producer Butch Vig revealed on Twitter that he had been back in the studio with the Foo Fighters mainman and former Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic.

Speaking to NME, the Garbage drummer confirmed that the trio are working on tracks for Grohl's new documentary on Sound City Studios, where 'Nevermind' was recorded with Vig on production duties. He also revealed a tentative release date for the material.

"It's a work in progress," he said of the soundtrack, adding:

We're not really sure how it's all gonna end up at this point but its been fun. There's still quite a bit more work to do and we hope to finish up in the next three or four months, and try get it all mixed and completed some time in the fall."


Grohl is currently working on the film, which pays tribute to the studio complex where numerous classic albums including Slipknot's 'Iowa', and Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' were recorded.

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, Tom Petty, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme are set to be among the contributors.
