If you in the the camp of people who thought the recent collaboration between Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana was awesome, you’re gonna love this. iTunes just released the track listing for the soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s upcoming ‘Sound City’ film, and it’s full of collaborations between Grohl and other top notch musicians who have recorded at the Sound City music studio that the film is about. The collaboration between Grohl, Krist Noselic, Pat Smear, and Paul McCartney, ‘Cut Me Some Slack’, is obviously the big one, but a close second is a track where Grohl is joined by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Nine Inch Nail’s Trent Reznor, entitled ‘Mantra’.
Grohl. Reznor. Homme. That’s pretty fucking awesome. The rest of the CD might as well be called ‘Dave Grohl And Friends’. Foo Fighters band mates Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, and Nate Mendel join in on several songs. Josh Homme appears on two other songs, The Wallflower’s Rami Jaffe shows up a few times, Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford stop by for a song, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor has a song with Grohl and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielson – it’s just random collaborations with some big names. The random awards goto Rick Springfield and Stevie Nicks, who each have songs where they are joined by various members of the Foo Fighters, and which I’m sure will end up being awesome songs.
The soundtrack will be released on March 12 of Grohl’s Rosewell Records, while the film be available for digital download and video on-demand on February 1st. The collaboration with Paul McCartney recently debuted at the huge 12-12-12 benefit show at Madison Square Garden, and was also performed on Saturday Night Live. It is available for download now.
