NEW York musician King Princess has described how she managed to work with Taylor Hawkins just before his death.
The Foo Fighters drummer guests on King Princess’ Let Us Die from her new album Hold On Baby.
Signed to Mark Ronson’s record label, the Queens of the Stone Age producer used his connections to get Hawkins to drum on the track.
“I played it for Mark, he ‘this is gonna be great, we need a drummer’,” King Princess told Linda Marigliano on LiSTNR’s New Music.
“He said ‘What do you think about Taylor Hawkins?’ Obviously I’m a huge Foo Fighters fan, I love Taylor’s solo albums and I love Alanis (Morissette). So Mark asked him and he said he’d do it.”
King Princess cleared using Hawkins on the track with his family and said she hopes the track serves as a tribute to him and a reminder of the power of rock. Have a listen:
