As seen on “The 47th Annual CMA Awards,” Zac Brown and Dave Grohl have released their performance of “Day of the Dead” on iTunes. And now they are planning on releasing an entire album of their collaboration together. Read the press release and watch a preview video from the studio.
On December 10, 2013, Zac Brown Band will release The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 on Zac’s own Southern Ground Artists label via iTunes.
The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 features the first studio recording of “Day for the Dead” the song which the band performed with Grohl on this year’s CMAs and has since earned praise as a “knockout” (AJC), that “rocked” (Vulture) and that “showcases some instrumental adventurousness that flirts with the ominous” (OC Register). Other songs on the release include “The Muse,” a song written by The Wood Brothers who are also signed to Southern Ground Artists, “All Alright” and “Let It Rain.”
“Dave is a musical genius,” said ZBB frontman Zac Brown. “It’s been amazing to play with him on stage and get to spend time working with him in the studio. We are excited for fans to hear the music we’ve been able to create together.”
The new release marks Zac Brown Band’s first collection of songs recorded at the Southern Ground Studios in Nashville. In addition to the traditional Zac Brown Band lineup of Zac Brown, John Driskell Hopkins, Jimmy De Martini, Coy Bowles, Chris Fryar, Clay Cook and Daniel de los Reyes, the recordings also feature guest performances by Oteill Burbridge on bass and Grohl on drums.
The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 available exclusively on iTunes December 10, 2013.
