Taylor took to Twitter to say that he had just completed a song with Grohl and Nirvana producer Butch Vig. Posting at Twitter/CoreyTaylorRock, Taylor, who also performs with Stone Sour, wrote: “HUGE checks off the Bucket List today- did a song with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. Do the words ‘holy shit’ say enough about it?!?”
It is not yet known if the song is for a Dave Grohl or a Corey Taylor project, however Dave Grohl recently collaborated with members of 1980s metal band, Ratt on a brand new song for a new Grohl project currently referred to simply as ‘TBA’. This suggests that the Taylor and Grohl song is being headed up by the Foo Fighters man.
Foo Fighters recently confirmed they are planning to head into the studio to record a new album this year. The band only released their latest studio effort ‘Wasting Light’ in April 2011 but frontman Dave Grohl revealed on the band’s official blog that he has already started compiling ideas for new songs.
He wrote: “We’re not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come. I mean if you would have told me 17 years ago that in 2012 I would be writing songs for our eighth studio album… well.”
Foo Fighters have been nominated for six gongs including Album Of The Year for ‘Wasting Light’ at the 54th annual Grammy Awards, which takes place on February 12 in Los Angeles.
