Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin have unveiled the fourth instalment in their ongoing Hanukkah Sessions series. Following their cover of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’, the pair have offered their take on Peaches’ ‘Fuck the Pain Away’. Watch the performance, featuring an appearance from Peaches herself, below.
“Drake’s not the only musical Jew from Canada,” a statement on the Foo Fighters’ social media pages reads. “Tonight we feature a Canadian rock G-Dess… who coincidentally grew up around the corner from a Canadian Jewish rock G-D (G-ddy Lee). Straight out the mikvah, here’s Peaches!”
Grohl and Kurstin, who produced Foo Fighters’ upcoming album Medicine at Midnight, are celebrating Hanukkah with covers of songs by eight prominent Jewish artists. In addition to ‘Hotline Bling’ and ‘Fuck the Pain Away’, they’ve also shared covers of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ and Mountain’s ‘Mississippi Queen’.
