Over the years, Taylor Hawkins has filled in the gaps between Foo Fighters releases with a serious of side-projects, including his covers band Chevy Metal, the Coattail Riders, and Birds of Satan. Now, though, he’s gearing up to release his first album under his own name. Entitled KOTA, the six-track mini-LP will see release on November 11th.
Hawkins sings lead and plays nearly ever instrument on the album. A press release describes the sound as “Queen on a skateboard,” “a short, sweet series of vignettes, but one that still strives to honor the tradition of Blur’s Parklife and The Kinks’ Are The Village Green Preservation Society.”
Listen to the album’s opening track, “Range Rover Bitch” below.
