Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has denied plans for a Nirvana reunion tour.

The move comes after Grohl recently collaborated with ex-Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear as well as Sir Paul McCartney on the new song 'Cut Me Some Slack', which was written for his forthcoming documentary Sound City. But a spokesperson for Grohl has told the New York Post that the reports are "nonsense" and stressed that there will be no Nirvana tour.

They performed the track last Wednesday (December 12) at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief and McCartney teamed up again with the surviving Nirvana members on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Earlier, they also have revealed the studio recording of 'Cut Me Some Slack', which you can hear by scrolling down the page and is available to download via iTunes now.

Meanwhile full details of the Sound City soundtrack were revealed last week. Titled 'Sound City – Real to Reel', it will also feature collaborations between Grohl and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac - on 'You Can't Fix This' - and between Grohl, Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme and Nine Inch Nails man Trent Reznor, who team up on a song called 'Mantra'.

The soundtrack also features appearances from Peter Hayes and Robert Levon Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age associate Alain Johannes.

The film marks Grohl's directorial debut and tells the story of the legendary California recording studio where classics such as Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' and Nirvana's 'Nevermind' were recorded. It will be shown at US film festival Sundance which runs from January 17-27, 2013.
