Dave Grohl sat down for an interview on Los Angeles radio station ALT 98.7 FM alongside his mom, author Virginia Grohl. During the interview, he talked about the upcoming Foo Fighters album, Consequence of Sound points out. After talking about how he’d been excited to perform the new music live before the coronavirus pandemic shut down live touring, he discussed the sound of the next album, comparing its sound to David Bowie’s Nile Rodgers collaboration Let’s Dance.
“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s almost like a dance record—not like a EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove, man,” Grohl said. “To me, it’s like our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make, ’cause we were, ‘Yeah, let’s make this really up, fun record!’ And it’s got its dark corners and whatever, but we were so excited to go out and play, and then we just hit pause on everything.” Watch the interview below with his comments about the new album starting around the 19:50 mark.
