Dave Grohl has claimed that the next Foo Fighters album will "not be a conventional record".

The frontman told Billboard that he is working on the follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light', but had no ideas as to when the album will be finished. "Well, we're just writing right now," he said. "When we start working on a record, what I've found is we work best at our own pace, and sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes a while."

Grohl went on to claim he has a "crazy" idea for the band's next album, promising that it will be unlike any album Foo Fighters have released in the past: "[I have] a crazy idea of what I want to do with the next record and how we record it. It's not conventional. It won't be a conventional record," he said. Drummer Taylor Hawkins added: "[The album is] just sort of a germ in Dave's head at this point. He says he's got a lot of ideas. We haven't really gotten down to brass tacks. I don't know what the path will be. It's always a little different, which is good."

Dave Grohl has most recently been focused on his documentary Sound City and its subsequent soundtrack, in which he collaborates with musicians including Steve Nicks, Trent Reznor and Paul McCartney. Speaking in London following a Sound City Players gig in February, Grohl claimed he was ready to start working on Foo Fighters material immediately.
