Exclusive: Wavves Reveal 'I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl' Cover Art

Image will appear on the band's new 'Life Sux' EP

August 25, 2011 1:10 PM ET


Who wants to meet Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl? Apparently, Wavves' Nathan Williams does, and we have an exclusive premiere of artwork from Williams' new EP Life Sux, which will feature the song "I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl." "That's Dave Grohl. It was drawn by Nick Gazin and it looks like Bradford Cox from Deerhunter with long hair," says Williams of the cover image. "Those are hobo symbols on the side, I think." The Grohl-loving first single from Life Sux premieres on MTV's new hipster comedy I Just Want My Pants Back following the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. The cut will also be available as a free download for a limited time on MTV.com.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
