Taylor Hawkins sings lead vocals in video for Foo Fighters’ cover of Andy Gibb’s ‘Shadow Dancing’

In the Foo Fighters’ new video for their cover of Andy Gibb’s “Shadow Dancing,” drummer Taylor Hawkins takes the lead.

The cover appeared on the Foo Fighters’ disco album, Hail Satin, which they released under the name the Dee Gees. On the record, the band covers a whole slew of Bee Gees tracks alongside the Gibb cover.

Now, we’ve gotten a colourful performance video for the tune. In the clip, Taylor Hawkins delivers some gritty vocal lines, with some “ooohs” and “aaahs” from back up singers. Hawkins sings famous lines like, “Shadow dancing, baby you do it right.”

Throughout the hazy video, frontman Dave Grohl delivers some background harmonies to support Taylor Hawkins.

About Hail Satin:

Hail Satin was originally released for Record Store Day. That limited-edition vinyl featured a rainbow-hued mylar sleeve, leaning into the album’s ’70s aesthetic.

The record features five covers of the Bee Gees and Andy Gibb. On Hail Satin, the Foo Fighters -er- the Dee Gees cover “More Than a Woman,” “You Should Be Dancing,” and more. The album also includes five live versions of songs from Foo Fighters’ 2021 album, Medicine At Midnight.

“For optimal results, listen with exposed chest hair and little gold spoon necklace (If you know, you know…),” the band said in a statement.

The album, which is marketed as Dee Gees’ debut, was recorded at Studio 606. It all came about after Foo Fighters covered “You Should Be Dancing” on Jo Wiley’s BBC Radio 2 “Sofa Sessions.”

“We’ve been going down to our studio every day and filming things and recording things, and this one day we had our list of things we were supposed to do and it said, ‘Record a cover song for Jo,’” Grohl explained of the Bee Gees track. “And while we were having this conversation, 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, ‘Okay… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said, ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.’”
