Foo Fighters Confirm Eighth Album, HBO Series Details
Yesterday we reported that Dave Grohl would be hosting an HBO show about iconic recording studios. It now appears that the series will be something of a companion to the Foo Fighters’ upcoming eighth album, which is set for release this fall.
Evidently, the band traveled to eight cities across the United States—Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York City—to record a song at different legendary studio. One song was recorded in each location, with each track featuring a local legend. Additionally, Grohl put off writing lyrics until the final day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became a part of the process.
The Dave Grohl-directed series will air this fall, around the same time that the album is released. Both the album and the show are currently untitled.
As previously reported, Joe Walsh recently revealed that he isone of the album’s special guests.
