Foo Fighters have a new song that would “destroy” live: “I would love for people to hear it”

ABC/Travis BellEarlier this week, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins said that the band is hoping to release a new album in 2020. Now, frontman Dave Grohl has teased the possibility of debuting a new track live.

In an interview with NME about the Foos' upcoming headlining set at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend, Grohl was asked about the possibility of the band playing any new material.

"There is one new song that would f***ing destroy and I would love people to hear it," Grohl responded. "It's written for a live performance, so we'll see. I don't know."

Grohl adds that he and the Foos aren't "far along in any kind of official process" as far as writing new music goes, but he does say that "there's always something."

"It's happened before where we've written a song that afternoon and performed it," Grohl shares. "Never say never."

Elsewhere in the interview, Grohl denied reports that he's contributed to a new Queens of the Stone Age album.

"I'm not on the new Queens record...I wish I was on the new Queens album," he said, adding that he "love[s] playing" with frontman Josh Homme.

The reports stemmed from a recent interview with ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, in which he said he and Grohl are set to appear on a new QotSA record. However, it's been theorized that Gibbons was actually referring to a new entry in Homme's long-running Desert Sessions collaborative series.

Grohl and Foo Fighters are currently touring the U.K. in continued support of their latest album, 2017's Concrete and Gold. They'll be back in the U.S. in September to play the Bourbon & Beyond and Pilgrimage festivals.
