Goo Goo Dolls have dished out details of their new album, which is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. The band have announced through their official site back in February that a new album is in the work and to Billboard.com the band has just confirmed that at least 25 songs have been in line but there's only "four, maybe five keepers right now."

Frontman John Rzeznik said that they will be back to their rock roots in the new set after tackling several semi-rock tunes in the previous release, "Let Love In". He explained, "We're really more of a rock band, which is kind of the approach that we're taking with the new album. That means all of us playing live in the studio and kind of under-producing it."

Rzeznik said that the three of them have been juggling their houses and the Buffalo, N.Y. studio to work on the album. The strategy is to get the songwriting done before they'll "let a producer come in and put his flair on it."

No title has been suggested yet for the album that was initially aimed for a June release.

Off the new project, they will soon release "Greatest Hits Volume Two" that compiles rarities, remixes, B-sides and new tracks in a CD and DVD. The set will be outed on June 17 via Warner Bros Records.

JR is making all the right noises for me! "Rock band", "under produced", "playing live in studio" - too much to hope for a Superstar Carwash or Boy Named Goo? Probably, but will be glad to consign the Let Love In sound to the trash bin.
