Dave Grohl keeps tight-lipped over Adele col­lab­o­ra­tion ru­mors

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Dave Grohl hasn't de­nied that Adele could be the "big­gest pop star in the world" fea­tured on a song on Foo Fight­ers' new LP 'Con­crete and Gold'. The stadium rock group's front­man pre­vi­ously teased a "sur­pris­ing" col­lab­o­ra­tion with a mys­tery pop singer who lends their vo­cals to one of the al­bum's "heav­i­est songs", but is not pre­pared to give away the sur­prise. The 'All My Life' hit­maker has hinted that it could be any num­ber of stars who were record­ing at the fa­mous East-West stu­dios in Los An­ge­les while they were mak­ing their al­bum, from Lady Gaga to Deep Pur­ple. Speak­ing to the lat­est is­sue of NME mag­a­zine, Dave said of the ru­mors: "You might have Sha­nia Twain hav­ing a record-re­lease party, or the guy from Deep Pur­ple hang­ing out with Ja­son Bon­ham, or Justin Tim­ber­lake would be in for a cou­ple of weeks, or Lady Gaga working with these other cats from Nashville. And ev­ery so of­ten we'd be like, 'Hey, wanna come sing some back­ing vo­cals?' and they'd just do it. It was loose and ran­dom: ev­ery­one was hang­ing out, drink­ing whiskey, hav­ing a good time. I never went to col­lege, but it's what I imag­ine a dor­mi­tory's like." The ru­mors cir­cu­lated af­ter it was re­vealed that the band have worked with Adele's pro­ducer Greg Kurstin, who did 'Hello' with the pop me­gas­tar. Dave, 48, was amazed by how laid back and "hum­ble" Greg was de­spite the amount of "gi­gan­tic" records he has worked on. He said: "Ev­ery time I'd bump into him he'd have another gi­gan­tic record out, and he's the most unas­sum­ing, re­served guy you've ever met. "You'd be like, wow, you wrote that Adele song? You played all the in­stru­ments on that? Get the hell outta here!'" 'Con­crete and Gold' is re­leased on Septem­ber 15 via RCA Records.
