Dave Grohl has teamed up with Swedish doom metal band Ghost to produce and drum on their cover of ABBA's 'I'm A Marionette' – listen to it below.

The track – which is from ABBA's fifth LP 'ABBA: The Album' will be the B-side to Ghost's forthcoming new single 'Secular Haze', which is due for release on April 17.

This is the latest project from the Foo Fighters man – who last week debuted his new supergroup the Sound City Players, at the Sundance Film Festival.

Grohl, who was accompanied by his Foo Fighters band mates throughout the three-hour show, introduced a rolling cast of rock aristocracy to the stage to play with him as he guided the crowd through a live history of music recorded at the Sound City Studios.

Nirvana's Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk were among the 17-strong line-up of musicians who took to the stage.

All the featured artists have recorded at the infamous Sound City Studios and appear in Grohl's documentary about the recording studios in Van Nuys, California, which premiered at the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Friday (January 19).

The film also features Paul McCartney, who teamed up with Grohl to front a band comprising the former members of Nirvana at the 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert in New York on December 12.

A studio recording of 'Cut Me Some Slack', the song the short-lived supergroup recorded for the film, was put online on December 17. Nirvana recorded their 'Nevermind' album at Sound City in 1991.

This promises to be a busy year for Grohl. He'll be delivering the keynote speech at this year's South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas on March 14, as well as drumming on the forthcoming Queens Of The Stone Age album.
