Foo Fighters Will Release A 10-Track Disco Album ‘Hail Satin’ As A Follow Up To ‘Medicine At Midnight’
The rock band Foo Fighters has recently posted a tweet announcing the release of the new album ‘Hail Satin’ which will come after their ‘Medicine At Midnight,’ and introduced their new alter-ego Dee Gees.
As you may remember, Foo Fighters had covered the popular Bee Gees track ‘You Should Be Dancing’ before on for Jo Wiley’s BBC Radio 2, receiving great excitement. They also had released their tenth album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ on February 5, 2021, although they had finished working on it one year ago.
The band is also known to be performing in Madison Square Garden on June 20, after their small concert for a vaccinated audience to encourage vaccination on June 15. Foo Fighters will also appear on Lollapalooza, which will be held between July 29 and August 1 after being postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic.
After the aforementioned cover of the song ‘You Should Be Dancing,’ the vocalist of the band, Dave Grohl commented upon their disco diversion, saying to Jo Wiley that they chose the song after watching a Bee Gees documentary and said they ‘did it like Bee Gees.’
David Grohl said to Jo Wiley that:
“And while we were having this conversation somebody said, ‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth – the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ‘Okay… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said, ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.’”
More recently, the band is known to be working on their new appearance on the stage as a Bee Gees tribute band named ‘The Dee Gees.’ They went on working on a new album called ‘Hail Satin,’ and in a recent tweet announced its release on July 17 which is also the Record Store Day. In the album, the band covered five Bee Gees songs along with reworking five songs from ‘Medicine At Midnight’: ‘Making A Fire,’ ‘Shame Shame,’ ‘Waiting On A War,’ ‘No Son Of Mine’ and ‘Cloudspotter.’
Their announcement tweet read:
“Introducing…the Dee Gees! Hail Satin – coming to a local record store & dance party near you July 17th!”
