We have to wait until September 15th to hear the new Foo album Concrete & Gold, but Dave has gotten us even more wound up about the release since he hinted at a special guest he claims as “the biggest pop star in the world” singing backup on “one of the heaviest songs on the record.”
Rumors have been floating around that the mystery back-up vocalist is Adele. Other than it seems like she has the entire music industry in the palm of her hand, the producer of Concrete & Gold has produced Adele albums in the past. Makes sense, right?
Although Dave refuses to confirm not deny the rumors, he told NME:
“You might have Shania Twain having a record-release party, or the guy from Deep Purple hanging out with Jason Bonham, or Justin Timberlake would be in for a couple of weeks, or Lady Gaga working with these other cats from Nashville. And every so often we’d be like, ‘Hey, wanna come sing some backing vocals?’ and they’d just f**king do it. It was loose and random: everyone was hanging out, drinking whiskey, having a good time. I never went to college, but it’s what I imagine a dormitory’s like.”
