The Foo Fighters have officially finished recording the follow-up to 2011’s Wasting Light. Producer Butch Vig confirmed the news with the following tweet.

The album was recorded in studios located in eight cities in America – Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Washington DC, and New York. A press release had the following to say about the experience:
“One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process. Each episode delves into the singular regional identity of each city-how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns-ultimately celebrating their common bond: Every artist that appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with the universal dreams of making music and making it big.”
At this time the album is still untitled and no artwork for it has been released. I might not have looked hard enough but it’s ok, we’ll have all that stuff soon enough.
