The double record will contain "the best music we’ve ever made"…
FOO FIGHTERS have revealed details of their “amazing” new double album.
The band are marking their ten year anniversary with a two-sided LP – one disc full of rock songs and the other featuring acoustic tracks.
Singer Dave Grohl said: “It’s really amazing. The good thing about doing it is that you split it up so that there’s no middle ground. So the rock stuff is the most rocking stuff we’ve ever worked on, ever.”
The as-yet-untitled album is due out in the summer, and the band have been recording in a converted 8,000 square ft warehouse.
Grohl said: “The acoustic stuff will be the trippiest, most beautiful, sleepy music we’ve ever made, almost like a soundtrack. It’s turning out to be really amazing. It’s really kind of a departure for us because it’s the best music we’ve ever made, but a lot of it is very different from anything we’ve ever done.”
As previously reported on NME.COM, Foo Fighters are set to headline Ireland’s Oxegen Festival in 2005.
Last year’s festival featured performances from The Strokes and [a][/a], and the 2005 event will take place at Punchestown Racecourse, Co Kildare (July 9-10).
