The Foo Fighters are heading in a new musical direction. Yet for a moment. They exchange the stomping stadium rock for disco, and release a record as the Dee Gees, a tribute band of the Bee Gees. The group name refers to the initials of frontman Dave Grohl.
The record, with the particularly witty title Hail Satin, will feature four covers of the Bee Gees, all four disco classics from the 1970s: “Night Fever,” “Tragedy,” “You Should Be Dancing,” and “More Than a Woman.” The A-side of the vinyl record closes with a version of ‘Shadow dancing’, the solo hit by Bee Gee Andy Gibb.
The B-side features live versions of the most recent Foo Fighter album Medecine at midnight.
The record will be released on July 17, on the occasion of US Record Store Day. The group announced the album on Twitter, with a clip of Grohl practicing his falsetto voice. Promising.
