Listen: Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins Drops New Single feat: Chrissie Hynde, Joe Walsh, and Duff McKagan

Get the Money by The Coattail Riders

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and his band the Coattail Riders have released the second single “Get the Money” from their forthcoming album by the same name.

The new offering from Hawkins’ band is a star-studded affair with The PretendersChrissie Hynde on backing vocals and The EaglesJoe Walsh on guitar alongside Guns N’ RosesDuff McKagan on bass.

“Get the Money” begins with an obvious ‘70s stoner-rock influence, then settles into a reggae-tinged groove before taking an unexpected prog-rock turn, with Walsh’s fiery guitar riffs taking center-stage. Meanwhile, Hawkins and Hynde trade lyrics, singing, “So you think you’re not getting your due/ You’re out of touch and been for a while/ You’re a spoiled brat, think you deserve this crap/ A grown man acting like a child.”

The group announced the release last week when they shared the song “Crossed the Line” – featuring Foo Fighters bandmate Dave Grohl and Yes singer Jon Davison (listen below). The LP will also include guest appearances by Heart’s Nancy Wilson, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, Country star LeAnn Rimes, Queen drummer Roger Taylor, Foo Fighters/Germs/Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear and Level 42 frontman Mark King.

Due out November 8th, Get the Money is the third album from the Coattail Riders which also features Chris Chaney, Brent Woods, and John Lousteau. The group’s self-titled debut arrived in 2006, while their second LP, Red Light Fever, was released in 2010.
