Dave Grohl Hints At "Surprise Guests" On New Foo Fighters LP

The unlikely alliance with Greg came about through a weird sequence of surprise musical obsessions and chance encounters: Listening to the radio during a drive roughly four years ago, Grohl first heard "Again and Again" by Kurstin's band The Bird & The Bee- "It blew my mind... it was so much more sophisticated than anything I'd ever heard and I became obsessed".

Roswell Records/RCA RecordsFoo Fighters debuted a new song from their forthcoming album Concrete and Gold during their show in Latvia Wednesday night.

However, we're going to have to wait until September 15 to find out what they're talking about (hmpffff)... He then asked her: "Do you want to get up in front of 20,000 people in Iceland and play?"

"The album's called "Concrete and Gold", it's 11 songs, it was produced by Greg Kurstin".

Via a press release, Foo frontman Dave Grohl said the idea for the daylong festivities came from the original California Jam, a festival co-headlined by Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake and Palmer at Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario in 1974. The band worked with producer Greg Kurstin, known best for his work with Sia, Beck and Pink.

Grohl reveals: "It's a huge Foo Fighters record with his sort of jazz/Brian Wilson/George Martin sense of melody".

"These two records honestly, Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters should join forces and just take over the world right now".

Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.

We can't say much more about the record yet, but Dan O'Connell reports that the stand-out tracks on first listen - apart from the single Run and the handful of other songs that have already had a live airing - are Dirty Water and The Line. The band are now officially a six-piece with Rami Jaffee looking after keyboards.
