Dave Grohl has spoken out about the next Foo Fighters album, saying that he and the rest of the band have "really awesome, big plans" for the record.

Speaking to MTV News, Grohl said that they already have the music ready for the follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light'.

"...We have a plan, we know exactly what's coming next, and I have the music for the next record and we're going to start working on it once we finish doing all this stuff," he said, referring to his current film and music project, Sound City, and all-star band, the Sound City Players, who played their debut gig at Sundance Film Festival last weekend.

He continued: "And we have really awesome, big plans for the next album and I'm really excited about it."

Grohl refused to give a prospective release date for the LP, however, saying: "If I give you something now, it means I'll actually have to make that deadline."

Meanwhile, earlier today (January 23), NME confirmed that Dave Grohl has hooked up with new band, RDGLDGRN.

In an interview, which you can read in this week's issue of the magazine, the Washington trio said that Grohl recorded drums for their currently-untitled debut album at LA's Sound City Studios in 2012 – and he may tour with them later in the year.

Grohl met the band at the studio complex while he was working on his documentary.

Head over to the NME Radar blog now to listen to the first new track to be aired from the sessions, 'Million Fans'. Pick up this week's magazine to find out what the band had to say about their UK touring plans.
