Watch Taylor Hawkins on lead vocals in Foo Fighters’ disco cover ‘Shadow Dancing’

Taken from the band's new disco side project the Dee Gees

Foo Fighters have shared a new video for ‘Shadow Dancing’, an Andy Gibb cover that appeared on the group’s recent disco side-project.

The band first revealed their disco leanings with a cover of the Bee Gees’ ‘You Should Be Dancing’ back in February.

It was then followed by a full album ‘Hail Satin’ under the name ‘Dee Gees’ earlier this month.

Released as part of a Record Store Day drop, it consists of four Bee Gees covers and Andy Gibb’s solo track ‘Shadow Dancing’, plus five live versions of songs from the band’s 2020 studio album ‘Medicine at Midnight’.

Now, the band have revealed the video for ‘Shadow Dancing’, which features drummer Taylor Hawkins stepping in on lead vocals. You can see it above.

Back in February, usual frontman Dave Grohl explained the decision to initially cover the Bee Gees’ ‘You Should Be Dancing’.

“Somebody said, ​‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth – the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ​‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ​‘OK… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said: ​‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees,’” Grohl told BBC Radio 2.

Last month, meanwhile, Foo Fighters performed a sold-out, full-capacity show at Madison Square Garden that welcomed live music back to New York. The band also recently confirmed their headline set at this year’s Lollapalooza Chicago at the end of this month, as well as at 2022’s Boston Calling festival.

Earlier this month, however, the band were forced to postpone a show at the Los Angeles Forum after a confirmed case of COVID-19 “within the Foo Fighters organisation”.
