Published Sep 06, 2017After revealing last month that Paul McCartney leant his drum skills to the new Foo Fighters record, Dave Grohl also hinted at the LP featuring "the biggest pop star in the world." It's now been revealed that the pop star in question is Justin Timberlake.
Grohl shared the information in an interview with Rolling Stone, revealing the collaboration that's set to appear on Concrete and Gold came about after a few drinks at the studio.
The publication wrote:
[Timberlake] listened to what the Foos were doing and liked what he heard, and pretty soon he and Grohl were hanging out regularly. "We'd drink whiskey in the parking lot," Grohl says. "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.' " So the band had him add some "la la la's" to one track. "He nailed it," Grohl says. "I'm telling you – the guy's going somewhere."
Grohl previously said that Timberlake "sings backup on one of the heaviest songs on the record." Concrete and Gold also features Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.
Concrete and Gold arrives September 15 on Roswell Records/RCA.
