Foo Fighters reveal new album’s mystery pop star
Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl confirms that Justin Timberlake is the mystery pop star who provides vocals on their new album Concrete And Gold
Foo Fighters vocalist and guitarist Dave Grohl has confirmed who the mystery pop star is that appears on their new album Concrete And Gold.
Speculation has been swirling about the identity of the artist ever since Grohl revealed in June that the follow-up to 2014’s Sonic Highways would feature “a bunch” of guests – including “the biggest pop star in the world.”
Grohl tells Rolling Stone that Timberlake and the Foos would hang out together during downtime between their respective recording sessions in Los Angeles.
Grohl says: “We'd drink whiskey in the parking lot. 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.’”
The Foo Fighters leader goes on to say that Timberlake provided “la la la” vocals on one song, joking: “I’m telling you, the guy’s going somewhere!”
