From Rolling Stone - September 6, 2017

Dave Grohl revealed that Justin Timberlake is the long-hyped mystery "pop star" collaboratorfeatured on the Foo Fighters' upcoming ninth LP, Concrete and Gold.

Grohl detailed this unexpected collision of hard-rock and mainstream pop inRolling Stone's new, in-depthcover profile, noting that Timberlake often hung out with the band during downtime between their respective recording sessions at L.A.'s EastWest studios.
