Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters producer Greg Kurstin are back for another year of “Hanukkah Sessions”.
Last year the pair released eight songs — one on each night of Hanukkah. The covers included Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, Bob Dylan‘s “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35″, the Velvet Underground’s “Rock and Roll” and the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”.
This time around, the duo are leading with a heavy-metal rendition of Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You)”.
“Instead of doing a Christmas song, this year, Greg and I decided to celebrate Hanukkah by recording eight songs by eight famous Jewish artists and releasing one song each night of Hanukkah — for you, so we hope you enjoy it,” explained Grohl in 2020.
With all the mishegas of 2020, @GregKurstin & I were kibbitzing about how we could make Hannukah extra-special this year. Festival of Lights?! How about a festival of tasty LICKS! So hold on to your tuchuses… we’ve got something special coming for your shayna punims.

“Happy Hanukkah,” he concluded.
