FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl and producer/musician Greg Kurstin have returned with another year of ‘The Hanukkah Sessions‘ in celebration of the annual Jewish festival of lights.
Last year, the FOO FIGHTERS siger/guitarist chose to celebrate Hanukkah with the release of cover versions of eight songs by Jewish artists in collaboration with Kurstin.
“With all the mishegas of 2020, Greg Kurstin & I were kibbitzing about how we could make Hannukah extra-special this year,” he explained as the series launched last year. “Festival of Lights?! How about a festival of tasty LICKS! So hold on to your tuchuses… we’ve got something special coming for your shayna punims” Dave said.
Last year’s sessions saw the duo cover tunes from the BEASTIE BOYS, DRAKE and more.
This year’s series has now commenced with a black metal inspired version of Lisa Loeb‘s 1994 hit single “Stay“. You can check it out below.
Dave and Greg comment: “Welcome back to the menorah, y’all. Let’s kick it this year’s Hanukkah sessions with one of Dallas, Texas’s favorite Jewish daughters. So put on your coffee shop spectacles and your Betsey Johnson dress and HAVA listen to this… “Stay” by Lisa Loeb.”
