Foo Fighters have released an animated mini-documentary on the making of their new album Concrete And Gold, which arrived on Friday (September 15th). In the short film, frontman Dave Grohl talks about how the band selected the producer it wanted to work with, Greg Kurstin, and how it landed a guest appearance from Justin Timberlake among others.
- Grohl recalls meeting Kurstin at a restaurant after hearing a song by his band The Bird And The Bee on the radio in his car. As the two become friends, Grohl decides he wants Kurstin to record the next Foo Fighters album. Kurstin has previously produced artists like Adele and Pink.
- Grohl also recounts how he floated the idea of working with Kurstin to the rest of the band, who were puzzled because Kurstin had never worked on a heavy rock record.
- In addition to Timberlake, the disc features guest appearances from Paul McCartney, The Bird And The Bee's Inara George, the Kills' Alison Mosshart and Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman.
- Foo Fighters have lined up a fall North American tour that kicks off on October 7th in San Bernardino, California with Cal Jam 17, featuring the Foos, Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, Royal Blood, The Struts and more. The rest of the tour begins on October 12th in Washington D.C.
