Dave wouldn't commit to naming a release date: "If I give you [a date] now, it means I'll actually have to make that deadline."
It has also been confirmed that Dave and his bandmate Taylor Hawkins will induct Rush into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year, according to UltimateClassicRock.
Meanwhile, what's all this about Dave joining a hip hop band?
They're called RDGLDGRN, and met Dave at Sound City studios last year, where they made friends and he offered to drum on their new recording. The band told NME that he "knocked out half our record like some kind of machine," and said it was "overwhelming" to work with such a legend.
It's not the only surprise collaboration Dave has worked on recently. Last week his drumming appeared on an Abba cover by Swedish metal band Ghost.
