Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players Pound Out ‘Mantra’ in the Studio – Premiere
Foo Fighter jams with Josh Homme and Trent Reznor for ‘Real to Reel’ track
Dave Grohl had a blast directing his documentaryÂ Sound CityÂ and performing with his Sound City Players ensemble ”“ but in this exclusive video, the rocker gets serious while writing and recording “Mantra” at his Studio 606 space. Grohl takes control on the drums, starting off focused and somber and unleashing his headbanging fury as the track builds steam.Â Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme provides the driving bassline whileÂ Nine Inch Nails’Â Trent Reznor creates a swirling vertigo of piano. The trio’s chemistry is impeccable as they journey through the almost eight-minute track without a word.
“Mantra” is on the soundtrackÂ Sound City: Real to Reel, out March 12th in the US. TheÂ Sound CityÂ film is available now and the Sound City Players areÂ set to play SXSWÂ on March 14th; Grohl will also be the keynote speaker at the festival.
