Taylor Hawkins Takes Lead Vocal in New Foo Fighters Song 'Sunday Rain'

Best known for producing pop acts such as Sia, Adele and Pink, he came to Grohl's attention after he heard Kurstin's former band The Bird And The Bee on the radio.

Taken back by the delicious gesture, Grohl, 48, said he didn't know who sent the treats until an hour after they arrived. "Some of them we're going to keep secret... until we stop selling records!"

"It was great because we were one block away from Queens of the Stone Age while they were making their record".

If you're not, you get to be mildly vexed about this whole situation.

"The album's called "Concrete and Gold", it's 11 songs, it was produced by Greg Kurstin".

Kurstin has proved to be an intriguing choice of producer.

Via a press release, Foo frontman Dave Grohl said the idea for the daylong festivities came from the original California Jam, a festival co-headlined by Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake and Palmer at Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario in 1974.

Grohl reveals: "It's a huge Foo Fighters record with his sort of jazz/Brian Wilson/George Martin sense of melody". If he isn't messing with us - and his definition of the world's biggest pop star isn't completely bananas (which, sigh, it could be) - there's a limited number of people that actually fit the bill. "It sounds like the Foo Fighters, EXCEPT for the seven part harmonies on everything!"

Already during their European tour this summer, the Foos have debuted the Concrete and Gold songs "Run", "The Sky Is a Neighborhood" and "La Dee Da".

As if releasing a new album and holding a music festival were not enough, The Foo Fighters also announced that they would be embarking on a series of concert tours this fall, which will kick off with the rock band's concert in Berlin on September 9 and will conclude in Salt Lake City, Utah on December 12.
