Watch: Dave Grohl compares forthcoming Foo Fighters album to David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’

In a new Mother's Day interview Grohl did with his mom Virginia

Dave Grohl has compared the forthcoming Foo Fighters album, which the band’s frontman said was finished back in February, to David Bowie’s Let’s Dance.

After being forced to postpone their 25th anniversary van tour due to the spread of COVID-19, Grohl has been making interview rounds, popping up on late-night shows and livestreams. In a new interview with Los Angeles radio station ALT 98.7 FM that Grohl did with his mother Virginia for Mother’s Day, Grohl chatted about the newly finished album, comparing it to Bowie’s 1983 record with Nile Rodgers.

“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs,” Grohl explains. “It’s almost like a dance record – not like a EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove, man. To me, it’s like our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make, we wanted to make this really up, fun record.”
