Dave Grohl just can't sit still. When he's not working on new Foo Fighters music, he's writing short stories, making movie cameos, filming documentaries, partaking in drum battles with 10-year-olds, and collaborating.
Last week, Stevie Nicks shared a new song featuring the busy rockstar, and now The Bird And The Bee are doing the same. The LA duo is prepping a holiday album titled Put Up The Lights and shared a rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" with Grohl on drums.
“Working on a holiday record during summer is always strange, no matter what the circumstance,” Inara George said in a statement. “But working on a holiday album during the summer, and a global pandemic, worldwide civil rights protesting, historical wildfires and the lead up to the most important election of our lives is really, really strange. Although I have to admit, it felt like such a sweet little momentary escape singing “Chestnuts Roasting on an open fire…” all alone in my closet. It was a little respite from reality.”
“We included some of our favorite holiday songs and wrote a couple of originals too. One of my favorite songs we wrote is 'You and I at Christmas Time' which was written through email,” Greg Kurstin added. “I sent Inara the piano part and I was blown away by what she sang over it.”
