Dave Grohl has said that he already has plans for the next Foo Fighters album, even though the band's new album is not even released yet.

The band recently confirmed they would release the follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light' later this year, with the new record recorded in eight different studios in eight states across America. It will be accompanied by mini series Sonic Highways, broadcast on HBO, which will document the recording progress.

Dave Grohl will operate as director on the project, following his Sound City documentary of 2013, and he tells The Hollywood Reporter that working on the show has informed the sound of the album.

Stating that the album is longer than anything they have previously released and may also feature horns for the first time, Grohl says, "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, ya 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."

Opening up further about the "cinematic" sound of the album, Grohl continues: "You'll recognize Foo Fighters in this record but you’ll also be surprised by us. We're doing things that we've never done before. Honestly, there are sections of songs that will really take you by surprise."

The ever-productive Grohl also disclosed the fact that he has already come up with a "fucking crazy" idea for the album after the next one. "I already know what we’re doing for the next Foo Fighters record and that's even fucking crazier. I came up with this idea a month and a half ago. The guys were, like, 'Dude, we have to finish this first.' I know, fuck!"

Foo Fighters previously suggested they could be set to announce a UK tour.
