After Taylor Hawkins’ death, Dave Grohl releases his first song.

There will be a lot of new songs coming out. Last year, Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 track “Piggy,” which was featured on the seminal album “The Downward Spiral,” was covered by St. Vincent and Dave Grohl.

For a very long period, the single was only made available on Record Store Day in 2021 as a 7-inch single. Due to the limited accessibility of the music without a specific physical copy, it became something of an underground classic.

Thankfully, an official audio version of it is now accessible on all the popular streaming services. Fans of St. Vincent are in love with the music, but those of Dave Grohl think his drumming leaves a lot to be desired. Some fans anticipated that Grohl would perform a bigger drum solo, but he actually played the music quite nicely and in the pocket. He always stayed in his proper place.

St. Vincent is an eclectic artist at heart, and her cover of “Piggy” demonstrates that she is at ease enough to travel beyond of her normal indie projects and into more serious territory.

Grohl and St. Vincent previously collaborated while they were both members of Nirvana, so this is not their first time working together. As many people still recall, St. Vincent performed Lithium at the band’s induction into the Hall of Fame.

When asked about her experience working with Nirvana, she said, “I thought it was a really cool way to honor the Olympia, [Washington] punk, freak, queer, feminist scene that the Nirvana guys came up in and were so very engrossed in that they asked women to fill in. “I thought it was a nice way to honor that part of their history, which sort of gets whitewashed in all the retrospective.

The musician is preparing to embark on a Fall tour across North America, accompanied by Roxy Music. You can check out her version of “Piggy” featuring Dave Grohl below.
