Prepare to hear Dave Grohl like you've never heard him before ...

While the Foo Fighters frontman is normally known for his gritty, powerful vocals, he is putting his own spin on a collection of Bee Gees' disco classics - falsetto and all.

In tribute to the Australian trio - who became one of the leading pop artists of the 70’s disco era - the Foo Fighters' have created an alter-ego band, the Dee Gees.

The limited-edition vinyl album, titled Hail Satin, will only be available on 17 July.

Announcing the album on Twitter, the band wrote: "Introducing... the Dee Gees!!!"

"HAIL SATIN - coming to a local record store & dance party near you July 17th!!!"

The album, recorded at the band's Studio 606, features Bee Gees classics like 'Night Fever,' 'Tragedy,' 'More Than a Woman,' and a cover of Andy Gibb's 'Shadow Dancing.'

Speaking about the album Grohl said to Rolling Stone that he "became obsessed with the Bee Gees after watching the HBO documentary about the hitmakers."

Earlier this year the rock band went viral after they performed a brilliant cover of the Bee Gees' 1976 classic 'You Should Be Dancing' for Jo Whiley's Sofa Session on BBC Radio 2.
