The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
More is coming out about the new Foo Fighters album, and in particular how the band is recording their new attempt. Front man Dave Grohl said before the new year that the band would record their new album in a way that he believes has never been done before. We’re not sure what that means, but we’re now reading rumors that the band is going to record each individual track in an entirely different studio. These aren’t just some silly things you’re hearing people say around the water cooler. It’s actually been posted on Billboard and also through a Twitter account named FooArchive that Grohl is scouting studios in 12 different cities to record their next disc.
Recording in different studios isn’t new to recording artists, but to do it in 12 different studios is unique, though Ted Nugent did 10 different studios for his record Intensities in 10 Cities. Of course, none of this is officially confirmed. With the Grammys later this month and the Rock Hall induction for Nirvana, Grohl has another busy year ahead.
Don’t expect to hear much from Evanesces’ Amy Lee this year, ‘cuz she be prego! The front woman posted a note for fans on Twitter this week about a secret she couldn’t keep anymore. The 32-year-old said she’s “been working on a very special new project for 2014-A BABY!” She says she and the baby’s daddy are expecting and she’s very happy.
Ok I can't keep it a secret anymore-I've been working on a very special new project for 2014-A BABY! Josh and I are expecting! I'm so happy!
She also has been working on a lawsuit against her former record label, Wind-Up Records, accusing them of selling the band’s back catalog to another company without paying the proper royalties. Needless to say, with a growing baby bump and a law suit, 2014 is gonna be big year for Amy Lee.
