Hawkins just told fans that the band plans to release their tenth studio album next year in an interview with RockSound. 

He said they hope “to have a new record by next year”. 

“From what I’ve heard from our fearless leader Dave Grohl, he has a lot of demos that he’s worked on and I think we’ll start once this tour is over,” he said. “I think not too soon after that we’ll start the process of putting the songs together as a band.” 

Hawkins also talked about songs he’d like the band to cover, saying “anything by Lil Pump”. 

“I just think we could nail that. I feel a connection to his music and I feel like we’d just kill some Lil Pump,” he said with a wink, which means he was probably kidding but we’d still like to hear what they’d come up with.

More Foo Fighters news

Foo Fighters have been known to perform surprise sets at tiny clubs for some time now, but Dave Grohl appears to have done so with help of someone else this time.

The legendary musician performed at London’s Moth Club with none other than ’80s pop star Rick Astley.

The pair joined together for the return of NME‘s Club NME for a special performance including Foo’s tracks, Astley’s signature song “Never Gonna Give You Up” and more.

“I’ve been a friend of the people at the NME for a long, long time,” Grohl says as he makes his way on stage. “When I walked in tonight, everyone said: ‘What are you gonna do?’ I said, ‘I have no fucking clue.’ So tonight we’ll play a couple of songs. I can’t believe how many people are here. We might have to do more than one fucking song!”

Astley joined Grohl on stage to play drums for “Times Like These,” “Everlong,” “Best Of You,” and of course the classic Astley track.

“I don’t know much about Club NME,” Dave says, “but I know you’re not gonna see this anywhere else.”
