Zac Brown Band and Dave Grohl have collaborated on a new album, and now the collision of country and rock music has a title and release date. The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 will be released on iTunes on Dec. 10, according to Consequence of Sound.
The four-track EP was written and recorded last month in Nashville and tracked to analog tape live. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Grohl explained he made that decision after discovering how much raw talent Zac Brown Band had. "We didn't f--- with computers, we tracked live, four-part harmonies around one microphone. It's rocking," Grohl said. "People are like, 'Oh, it's country.' 'No, it's not, it's like the Allman Brothers.' 'No, it's not, it's jam band.' I don't even know what you call it; it's f---ing great."
In addition to producing The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1, the Foo Fighters frontman also played drums on the EP.
The Zac Brown Band and Grohl have teased their collaboration. They performed "Day for the Dead" at the 2013 Country Music Association Awards, proving that country can rock just as hard as, well, rock.
"Day for the Dead" will be included on the EP. Other songs include: "All Alright," "Let It Rain" and "The Muse."
The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 will drop Dec. 10. A second volume will be released sometime next year, alongside a physical release and a making-of documentary.
