Paul McCartney Is On The New Foo Fighters Album

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has revealed that Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney plays drums on a song which appears on the forthcoming Foo Fighters album Concrete And Gold.

Speaking with ET Canada, Grohl says, “Paul McCartney plays drums on one of our songs. He’s a pal. We’ve known him for a long. He’s great. He’s the most wonderful person in the world. He’s a great guy.”

Meanwhile, Grohl’s bandmate (and Foo Fighters drummer) Taylor Hawkins says McCartney “hadn’t even heard of the song” when he came in to record it with the band.

“He comes in and Dave picked up an acoustic and showed him real quick,” he says. “He sat on his special drum set that his tech set up for him. I sat there with a drumstick conducting. He did two takes.”

McCartney has previously worked with Grohl on the song ‘Cut Me Some Slack’, which also featured Foo Fighters’ Pat Smear and Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic. Grohl also backed McCartney during his Grammys performance back in 2009.

Foo Fighters are preparing to release Concrete And Gold on 15th September, and we already know that it will also feature appearances from Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman, The Kills’ Alison Mosshart and “the biggest pop star in the world”, which Grohl has confirmed isn’t Adele or Taylor Swift.

Foos have already shared a bunch of songs from the album: ‘Arrows’, ‘Dirty Water’, ‘Sunday Rain’, ‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood’ and ‘Run’, which you can check out below.

Foo Fighters will tour in support of Concrete And Gold, but are yet to announce any Australian tour dates. McCartney, on the other hand, is set to tour Australia in December.
