Published Nov 04, 2020In February, Dave Grohl confirmed that Foo Fighters had finished recording their 10th studio album. While the time since has been filled with cancelled tours, storytelling, op-eds, drum battles and more fresh pots, it appears the Foos have now begun teasing the follow-up to 2017's Concrete and Gold.
Last week, a pair of fans in California spotted the above "FF X" logo in two different locations in the state, leading listeners to believe the 'X' to be a numerical hint at a forthcoming tenth LP.
On October 29, a teaser was snapped along Hollywood Boulevard, ahead of a second being projected onto a building in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. The projection teaser, which you can view here, also includes black and white footage of a coffin burning.
Foo Fighters fans on Reddit have since pointed out that the same coffin-burning clip now appears upon playing catalogue staples including "The Pretender" and "These Days" with Spotify — a streaming tease tactic previously used by Deftones.
Grohl previously compared the album to David Bowie's Let's Dance, explaining, "It's filled with anthemic, huge, singalong rock songs. It's almost like a dance record in a weird way — not like an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It's got groove, man."
Late last month, Foo Fighters unearthed live material from 1996 for a new EP.
