Dave Grohl Produces ABBA Cover With Ghost
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. Hear more from Ghost performing live in this clip:
What do you think of Ghost? Could they become one of the breakthrough acts of 2013, or will you reserve judgement until hearing their second album? Let us know in the comments.
