Dave Grohl has produced a cover of an ABBA song with the mysterious Swedish band Ghost.
Grohl also features on drums for the single which will only be available as a limited edition vinyl pressing.
It's an unusual combination, so one of the so-called Nameless Ghouls told Decibel magazine more about why ABBA are important to a Swedish band like them:
"ABBA basically took a few hundred years of traditional Swedish music and made it into pop songs. I'm talking about folk music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries... I think anyone from Scandinavia is easily infatuated with that sort of music, so ABBA has a deeper meaning to us, I think."
Ghost aren't a new band, but they've been gaining hype as a band to watch in 2013 since recruiting Grammy winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Foo Fighters) to produce their second album "Infestissumam", due in Spring.
You can order the limited 10-inch vinyl cover of ABBA's "Secular Haze", produced by Dave Grohl, at this site.
