Dave Grohl has revealed that he will begin work writing songs for the next Foo Fighters album, the follow-up to this year’s ‘Wasting Light’, in the new year.

In a blog post on the band’s official website he said: “Thank you all for making ‘Wasting Light’ the most incredible album experience of our band’s seventeen year history. For real … And to all of you, we’re not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come. I mean, if you would have told me seventeen years ago that in 2012 I would be writing songs for our eighth studio album… well…”
