Last night they were joined by Zac Brown, lead singer of the American country-folk group Zac Brown Band based in Atlanta, Georgia. Brown appears on the Foo’s new album Sonic Highways.

The lads combined to play a thunderous cover of the famous 1970 song. Sonic Highways will be released on November 7th and is the band’s eighth studio LP. The new record clocks in a 44 minutes and features eight new songs.

The group will premiere ‘Something From Nothing’, the first song to be taken from upcoming album on Thursday night.
