This is the first thing I thought of when he originally hinted at the idea.

Does anybody know if he has bought EastWest?

Wonder if 606 is used as a studio at all nowadays or is it only the FF HQ / storage for their gear..?

606 is still a studio - recently there was a news piece on Mark Hoppus collaborating with someone there & a band called Fuzz Evil just released some stuff recorded there. As for why Play wasn't recorded there. Could be any number of reasons but because 606 is an active studio it may just have been in use in the small window they had.

They've also got 607 now but I wonder if it's still under construction or it's too much of a multipurpose space to have accommodated a project like Play. It does seem a bit odd to have two studios and not use them, but it would've been for a reason.

I may be misremembering but I think he said somewhere that 607 was for purely video filming projects, and not set up for recording music.

I think Dave fell in love with EastWest when making Concrete and Gold. I am really looking forward to watching this.
Is there any literature out there about "607"? I hadn't seen anything about it until this thread.

Dave and Taylor have both alluded to it indirectly a few times, but I think this is the only time it was referred to directly - https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...t-band-201184/

Quote:
Next door, the band is in the middle of building Studio 607, a multimedia complex with editing suites and a screening room where Grohl can do post-production work on his growing body of TV and film projects (which include Sound City and the 2014 HBO series Sonic Highways). He has a lot of plans: He wants to make a documentary about tour vans and Eighties indie-rock culture, and hes been working with a Hollywood producer to develop a feature film, which he would direct. But I dont have a lot of time to branch off and do those projects that I love when Im doing Foo Fighters stuff, he says. So I have to kind of choose my battles.

So, is EastWest DG's business now? Remember an article about Play where he says something in the lines of "I have a studio, EastWest"..

These snippets are sounding excellent. Very excited for this (even though I'm not a huge fan of instrumental music)

Hello new Foo friends. Stupid question time... I purchased the digital Play and a new tshirt. I got the link emailed to download the song but I havent been able to download it. Is it because it isn't available till the 10th or am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance.

I'm getting a bit confused.
I thought this was all in one take, but he's wearing different clothes on the previews. So...

Was this done in different takes/hours/days, or did he change his clothes on purpose, on the same take?

Too soon to question this, or has it been explained?

It was recorded over a few days but each instrument was one take, so each instrument gets a change of clothes, then when the multi-Dave playback happens it’s less confusing to the eye.

I just realised, when I pre-ordered the vinyl, I didn't pick which digital download format I'd like. I'm stuck with MP3!
