New Foo Fighters Record to Feature Paul McCartney on Drums

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has indicated in a recent interview that Sir Paul McCartney provided the drum tracks for a song on their upcoming album, Concrete and Gold.

The news follows a series of other hints and news about guest spots on the record, including vocal contributions from Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart.

As the Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins relayed to ET Canada:

"He hadn’t even heard of the song. He comes in, and Dave picked up an acoustic and showed him real quick. 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."

Grohl had previously teased that the upcoming release would include backup vocals from "probably the biggest pop star in the world" which could very well be McCartney or perhaps someone else entirely.

This isn’t the first time Grohl and McCartney have worked together. In 2009, Grohl was on stage with McCartney for his notable Grammy performance, and the pair also collaborated on the track “Cut Me Some Slack” with Pat Smear and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.

You can pick up Concrete and Gold starting September 15, and if you’re quick, grab some tickets to their massive US tour kicking off October 7th in San Bernardino, California.
