Foo Fighters may still be in the process of “going a way for a while”, but that doesn’t mean plans for the next Foos LP aren’t already being hatched in Dave Grohl’s head.

Talking to Billboard at an SXSW-based showing of his new film, ‘Sound City: Real To Reel’, Grohl said: “Well, we’re just writing right now. When we start working on a record, what I’ve found is we work best at our own pace, and sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes a while”.

He then said: “I have a crazy idea of what I want to do with the next record and how we record it. It’s not conventional. It won’t be a conventional record”.

Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins added: “It’s just sort of a germ in Dave’s head at this point. He says he’s got a lot of ideas. We haven’t really gotten down to brass tacks. I don’t know what the path will be. It’s always a little different, which is good”.
