In anticipation of the imminent release of their new album, Concrete & Gold , Foo Fighters had promised the presence of ‘the planet’s greatest pop star’ on the album, although Dave Grohl was steadfastly refusing to reveal his identity. Little was known until know, but after many request, the mysterious man is none other than Justin Timberlake.
The new Foo Fighters album will arrive with one of the less thoughtful collaborations: ex NSYNC Justin Timberlake .
Dave Grohl commented long ago in an interview for Rolling Stone that the album would count on the collaboration of “the biggest pop star on the planet.”
According to Grohl himself for Rolling Stone magazine, the union was unexpected, because after spending several days with Justin, it was Timberlake who offered to add some voices to the record: Timberlake heard what the Foo were doing and he liked, and was immediately with Grohl.
“We had whiskey in the parking lot,” says the former Nirvana guitarist. “He’s very nice. Then the night before his last day he said, ” Can I sing on your album? I do not want to pressure them, but … I just want to be able to tell my friends. He brought some ‘la la’ to a song. He hit the target! I tell you, that boy will be someone important.”
This is one of the luxury collaborations that will have the album, we know that the biggest name among that repertoire is that of Paul McCartney, who played drums on one of the songs, although the idea at first seemed completely crazy to the bass of The Beatles.
Now that the mystery was unveiled, he said that they met when the band and singer agreed on their recording sessions in a Los Angeles studio:
Foo Fighters is preparing for the release of their new album ‘Concrete and gold’, one of the most anticipated of the year, and the band led by Dave Grohl showed his third single called ‘The line’ on Thursday. Concrete and Gold will arrive on September 15 and will feature great guests like Paul McCartney, Alison Mosshart of The Kills and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.
The song joins the singles ‘Run’ and ‘The sky is a neighborhood’ as part of the promotion of the disc that will arrive at the discos and streaming services on Friday, September 15.
It will be awesome to see ‘Concrete and gold’ which will feature a number of guests like Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men and Paul McCartney playing drums on one of the tracks.
According to T 13, the biggest surprise will not be the former Beatle, but “the biggest pop star in the world,” according to the former Nirvana drummer. What do you think of Justin Timberlake singing on the new Foo Fighters album?
