Foo Fighters Hint at Their Return with Mysterious Teasers
"FF X" points to a 10th studio album on the way
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.
