Foo Fighters Announce Bee Gees Tribute LP ‘Hail Satin’
Earlier this year, the Foo Fighters paid homage to the Bee Gees with their cover of “You Should Be Dancing” for BBC Radio 2’s Sofa Session. Now, the band have taken things a step forward with a new Bee Gree tribute album just in time for Record Store Day.
Hail Satin is a new tribute album from the “Dee Gees” featuring covers of Bee Gees hits like “Night Fever,” “More Than a Woman,” and Andy Gibb’s “Shadow Dancing.” While side A features disco hits, side B consists of “Making a Fire,” “Shame Shame,” “Waiting on a War,” “No Son of Mine” and “Cloudspotter” all recorded live at the band’s 606 Studio.
The new album will be released as a limited edition vinyl in a vintage-inspired rainbow mylar sleeve as part of Record Store Day. Fans can pick it up July 17th. To see participating stores and other limited releases, check out the website here.
Revisit the Foo Fighters aka the Dee Gees covering “You Should Be Dancing” below.
Speaking about busting out his best falsetto, Dave Grohl said “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!”
