Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney Are On The New Foo Fighters Album

Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney will feature on the new Foo Fighters album ‘Concrete and Gold’.

Timberlake was working at EastWest studios while Dave Grohl and his bandmates were recording Concrete and Gold, and decided to say hi.

During the chat, Justin asked the rockers if he could sit in on a track – just so he could boast to friends that he had recorded with the Foo Fighters.

“We’d drink whiskey in the parking lot,” Grohl tells Rolling Stone. “He was really, really cool. Then the night before his last day, he says, ‘Can I sing on your record? I don’t want to push it, but – I just want to be able to tell my friends’.”

Grohl didn’t think twice and pulled him into the studio to sing backing vocals.

“He nailed it. I’m telling you – the guy’s going somewhere,” the rocker jokes.

The Foo Fighters frontman also reveals his friend Sir Paul McCartney plays drums on one track.

Paul McCartney admits he was a little puzzled when he was first asked to get behind bad drummer Taylor Hawkins’ kit, but insists he was really keen to be in the studio with the group.

‘Even if it had been banjo, I think I probably would have showed up,” he says.

Hawkins adds, “You don’t generally think of him as a drummer, but he laid that track so fucking effortlessly. He never even heard the song. Dave kind of explained it to him with an acoustic guitar. And he was like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I think I know what you’re doing’.”

Grohl smiles, “He was so fucking good. We played for an hour, then took a break and had bagels and tea. I thought we were done… and someone goes, ‘Hey, Paul wants to jam some more’. He rounded everybody up, and we jammed for hours.”

Foo Fighters will tour Australia and New Zealand in 2018. The dates are here.
