Dave Grohl: 'New Foo Fighters Album Will Be a Love Letter to History of American Music'
As previously reported, Foo Fighters are officially set to release their new studio album this fall and have also detailed the unprecedented way of recording used during the record's creation.

Recently describing the upcoming effort, frontman Dave Grohl dubbed the release "a love letter to the history of American music," Independent reports.

When it comes to recording techniques, the band tracked the album in eight cities across the US, having local legends such as Cheap Trick or Joe Walsh of the Eagles sit in during each of the sessions.

Furthermore, the album will be the focal point of Grohl's very own HBO TV series, set for premiere during the winter schedule, also marking the band's 20th anniversary.

As the official statement reads, the lyrics on the album were 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," the release reads.

The list of cities the band visited during their recording journey includes Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC and New York. The latest Foo Fighters studio release, "Wasting Light," saw its release in April 2011 via RCA Records.
