However, the Sky Is A Neighborhood rocker also teased that he could already "see" the new album, even if he doesn't know when they will make it.

"And when we start making records, it’s almost like I don’t hear the songs I can see the songs In my head," he explained.

“See I don’t read music, I can see the songs in shapes and patterns. So I can see the next record. I know that there’s another one there. I don't know when, but I think I know what we should do".

Talking about the band's longevity and the fact they've been together for 24 years Grohl added: "It’s a trip. It’s a time warp.

"Because really when I start thinking about all the things that have gone by and the first album and the second and the third album and the fourth album and the - thinking ‘Wow, people were really listening? Holy shit. Cool!'"
