The Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and his band the Coattail Riders teamed up with Chrissie Hynde, Joe Walsh and Duff McKagan for a simmering new song, “Get the Money,” the title track from their next LP, out November 8th via Shanabele/RCA Records.
“Get the Money” takes several unexpected musical turns, opening like a psych-folk tune, settling into a reggae-tinged groove, going back to that psych-folk vibe before steadily ramping up into a breakneck prog freakout. Throughout the song, Walsh peels off crackling riffs over McKagan’s supple bass while Hawkins and Hynde trade lyrics, singing, “So you think you’re not getting your due/ You’re out of touch and been for a while/ You’re a spoiled brat, think you deserve this crap/ A grown man acting like a child.”
Hawkins and the Coattail Riders announced Get the Money last week, sharing, “Crossed the Line,” which features Dave Grohl and Yes singer Jon Davison. The LP will also feature contributions from Nancy Wilson, LeAnn Rimes, Queen drummer Roger Taylor, Foo Fighters/Germs/Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear and Level 42 frontman Mark King.
Get the Money marks Hawkins’ third album with the Coattail Riders, which also features Chris Chaney, Brent Woods and John Lousteau. The group’s self-titled debut arrived in 2006, while their second LP, Red Light Fever, was released in 2010.
