Grohl has been hard at work preparing for the release of Foo Fighters’ 10th studio album Medicine At Midnight. The forthcoming LP arrives on Feb. 5, 2021 and marks the band’s 25th anniversary. Last month, fans got a taste of Medicine At Midnight with their groovy new single “Shame Shame.”

Just this week, Taylor Hawkins opened up about why Foo Fighters picked “Shame Shame” as their first single. As well, he revealed that his favorite Foo Fighters song was released over 20 years ago.

Now, it looks like Grohl is temporarily focusing on a new project for the holidays. The Foo Fighters frontman and producer Greg Kurstin have teamed up for the Hanukkah Sessions. Together, the duo will be performing various songs by Jewish artists in celebration of Hanukkah.

“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,” Grohl said.

To help kick off the first day of Hanukkah, Grohl and Kurstin decided to take on the Beastie Boys megahit “Sabotage.” On Friday, Grohl took to Twitter to explain why they decided to cover this particular song.

As the only Rock and Roll Hall Of Famers with a lyric about kugel, we thought it would be a shanda to not kick off this party with New York’s (and Abraham’s) finest…known by some as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abedenego known by their Imas & Abbas as @beastieboys!”
