Default "Foo Fighters Joined By ‘One Of The Biggest Pop Stars In The World’ On New Album"

Hey, been a while

Didn't see this anywhere here - http://www.billboard.com/articles/co...gold-new-album

Speaking with BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Grohl revealed Concrete and Gold will feature numerous guests, including “some that will really surprise you.” He continued, “There’s one who is probably the biggest pop star in the world and -- I’m not kidding -- sings backup on one of the heaviest songs on the record, and we're not telling anybody who it is.”

Makes me nervous, though what we've heard so far is promising. And I guess back in the day I was probably nervous about Norah Jones too

Cha'mone!

Yeah, discussion for the album including this is in the other thread but this is an important sub-topic IMO and warrants it's own discussion, so I'll leave it open. Not like we've gone too many threads active at the minute any way.

However yes, that website is banned here because of poor quality and clickbait articles, so i've edited in another source.

welcome back to the board Steve.

Welcome back?? I mean I've only been gone...what? 5 years?

Cheers Simon. I'm back with the milk and cigarettes I left for


On the topic, 2017 seems to be the year big rock bands go pop, and it makes me nervous. I wasn't crazy about QOTSAs latest, though not overtly poppy.

If we hadn't heard anything, and were told about the pop producer, I might be concerned they were going to pull a Linkin Park on us. However, with 'Run' and at least 'La Dee Da', clearly the heavy rock is still there. 'The Sky is...' is a litter softer, but I wouldn't say it's full-on mainstream pop or anything.

I'm kinda thinking it may end up a bit like TINLTL, a mixture of heavy rock and softer stuff. I'm ok with that.

As for the big guest, I think it probably has to be Adele or Taylor Swift, as they know Dave, they've "hung out" a few times. Some of the other names guessed, I can't see them just getting involved, like Lady Gaga, with no prior association with the band.

I find it rather refreshing. So far it's still rocking, from what we've heard.

With "numerous guests" on the album and La Dee Da and TSIAN being played with Alison Mosshart what are the odds that she is one of them. Clearly not the "pop star" but maybe one of the other guests?

Alison Mosshart is on 'La Dee Da', Jessy Greene is on the album, that pop star is probably one of the ladies guessed.

Fem Fighters. Bring it on.

Are those for a fact? Or just assumptions?

Jessy confirmed herself.

Now I just need to hear that Sara Bareilles was somehow involved and I'm in heaven.

The thought crossed my mind obviously. xD

For now I'll have to conform with another favorite-artist-collision: Bareilles + Duncan Sheik, I don't think they even recorded anything, just did something live, but I love with when my favorites cross paths.

In a more recent interview, Dave said there's one they're never going to tell anyone about. So there's more than one big name guest to guess.

It's not Katy Perry or Taylor Swift.


Both Taylor and Katy have been *suggested as the *mystery collaborator on the latest Foo Fighters album *Concrete And Gold after Dave teased they had teamed up with “the *biggest pop star in the world”.

But Dave insisted neither star was involved.

He said: “If I was smart enough and wanted to sell more records, I should have asked them. But this is *someone no one would expect in a million years.

“We also have SHAWN STOCKMAN from BOYZ II MEN on the heaviest song on the record and *TAYLOR GREENWOOD is on there too.

“Next time around maybe we’ll go for *politics.

“Wouldn’t it be so good if we got BARACK OBAMA?”

So maybe not even Adele then? Gaga?

^^^^ But this is *someone no one would expect in a million years.

That's something that Dave would like to do.
So probably not Adele, not Gaga either, she performed with Metallica so people have already seen her doing something different..

We still don't know if it's a woman, right?

We are also assuming its the biggest star in the western world. What if it is someone who is massive in China for example?
