It seems like Foo Fighters will soon gift us a new record. The group’s frontman Dave Grohl decided to spill the beans on the new album in a recent interview and share that it’s already finished.

Grohl dropped the news on The Bill Simmons Podcast, where he also revealed that the album will contain a riff that he first thought of 25 years ago.

“We just finished making a record,” said Grohl. “Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”

This isn’t all, however. Grohl also talked about his new documentary, which will talk about bands touring in a van. According to him, the project will feature contributions from some of music’s biggest stars.

“I’ve interviewed everybody,” said Grohl about the documentary. “The Beatles toured in a van, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, U2, everybody has had a van. There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge.”

The new Foo Fighters album was first confirmed back in October when Dave Grohl told the audience in Brazil that the band will get in the studio after they wrap up their tour. This new record will serve as a follow up to 2017’s Concrete and Gold and will be the band’s 10th LP.
