Dave Grohl has spent the last two and a half months shedding light on his Sound City collaborations with Stevie Nicks, Corey Taylor, Paul McCartney, Rick Springfield, etc. However, it’s the Trent Reznor and Josh Homme-featuring closing track “Mantra” that’s forever been the soundtrack’s best kept secret — until now.
Now that the album’s streaming in full, the much hyped anthem has surfaced, and it’s pretty much exactly what one might expect from the three veterans. Reznor tinkers with his electronics and coughs out his trademark snarl, Grohl adds some hearty vocals and poppy percussion, while Homme channels his Desert Sessions work with a sprinkle of sultry harmonies.
Sound City: Real to Reel officially hits stores March 12th via Grohls own Roswell Records.
