We are roughly two months away from The Foo Fighters’ new album Concrete and Gold arrives on September 15th via Roswell/RCA. They initially promised that the new album would have the “biggest pop star in the world on it,” and now we know who that is. To some extent, it seems they are bringing the nineties back with this record by recruiting Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman as a musical guest. Obviously, we won’t see a return of Beavis and Butthead, crimped hair, and Pogs just yet, but at least we are curious what this collaboration will sound like. Dave Grohl recently told BBC that Stockman will appear on their “heaviest” track.
Grohl was asked about the album’s weirdest moment, he replied:
“The guy from Boyz II Men walking through the parking lot and me saying ‘Ahh, dude, would you sing on our record?’ And he does–on the heaviest song on the entire record [that would be the title track.] It sounds like Sabbath and Pink Floyd. It’s heavy. It’s the last song on the record with the guy from Boyz II Men… He built a choir–it’s like 40 vocals stacked. It’s insane.”
