Get out the disco balls, disco is back! Foo Fighters have announced that they will be releasing a new album next month under the moniker the Dee Gees. They just covered the Bee Gees’ “You Should Be Dancing” during a BBC Radio 2 session a few months ago. I really like this version, I am really ashamed to say that this could be Foo Fighter’s best song ever in a long time. Did grunge bring back disco? The disco-inspired album called ‘Hail Satin’ will be available on July 17. The album will include four Bee Gees covers.
Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighter’s drummer, has truly captured the Gibb look.
“We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘Okay, well I’m gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life!” Grohl said. “I sang the song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like this for the last 25 years!”
The 10-track project features four Bee Gees covers, a rendition of Andy Gibb’s ‘Shadow Dancing’, and five live versions of ‘Medicine At Midnight’ songs. You can see the full tracklist below.
