“So now everybody must get stoned (not in the Law of Moses sense) as we put some blood on this track: Rainy Day Women 12&35 by the immortal @bobdylan!,” they said of the cover.
Announcing the series last week, Grohl said: “This year, instead of doing a Christmas song, Greg and I decided to celebrate Hanukkah by recording eight songs by eight famous Jewish artists and releasing one song each night of Hanukkah.”
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters are set to return with a new album next year. ‘Medicine At Midnight’ will be released on February 5, 2021 and will include the recently released single ‘Shame Shame’.
