Update: Dave Grohl And Greg Kurstin Announce Hanukkah Song Series, Share Beastie Boys Cover

Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin will celebrate Hanukkah with a Hanukkah themed song series.

Titled The Hanukkah Sessions, the two will be sharing renditions of songs by eight Jewish artists to celebrate the Jewish holiday. Spanning the entirety of the holiday, the series starts today and runs through Friday, December 18th.

UPDATE: Night one kicks off with their cover of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.” Watch it below.

“This year, instead of doing a Christmas song, Greg and I decided to celebrate Hanukkah by recording eight songs by eight famous Jewish artists and releasing one song each night of Hanukkah,” said Grohl, adding in a tweet on Foos’ account: ​“With all the mishegas of 2020, Greg Kurstin and I were kibbitzing about how we could make Hannukah extra-special this year. Festival of Lights?! How about a festival of tasty licks! So hold on to your tuchuses… we’ve got something special coming for your shayna punims.”

Check out the announcement video below.

Grohl and Kurstin previously worked together on the Foo Fighters‘ 2017 album, Concrete and Gold.
