Foo Fighters have shared a new video for “Shadow Dancing,” an Andy Gibb cover that appeared on the group’s recent disco side-project, named the Dee Gees. Now, the band have revealed the video for “Shadow Dancing,” which features drummer Taylor Hawkins stepping in on lead vocals.
Back in February, Dave Grohl explained the decision to initially cover the Bee Gees’ “You Should Be Dancing.” “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, ‘OK… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said: ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees,’” Grohl told BBC Radio 2.
“We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘OK, 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!”
The band released a full album, Hail Satin under the name Dee Gees earlier this month. Released as part of a Record Store Day drop, it consists of four Bee Gees covers and Andy Gibb’s solo track “Shadow Dancing,” plus five live versions of songs from the band’s 2020 studio album Medicine at Midnight.
