The band will perform live disco versions of Making A Fire, Shame Shame, Waiting On A War, No Son Of Mine, and Cloudspotter.
“Hail Satin” Will Be Released On 17 July
The album is recorded at the band’s own studio 606. They announced the release of this album through their Twitter handle. The Twitter handle,”Introducing… the Dee Gees!!! Hail Satin – coming to a local record store and dance party near you July 17!!”
The famous band is popularly also known as The Holy Shits. Dave Grohl the founder of the band acclaimed, “We’ve been going down to our studio every day and filming things and recording things, and this one day we had our list of things we were supposed to do and it said, ‘Record a cover song for Jo.”
Foo Fighters Got The Idea Of Album From Bee Gees Documentary
Dave further admitted that during their to-do session someone asked them to see the Bee Gees documentary. On talking further Dave stated, “And while we were having this conversation somebody said, ‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth – the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ‘Okay… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said, ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.”
So from here, they got the idea to feature the Bee Gees Covers in their upcoming album. Dave endorsed that it was the easiest song that he has sung in his life.
He accordingly remarked saying, “We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘Okay, well I’m gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life! I sang the song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like this for the last 25 years!”.
