Wavves’ Nathan Williams hasn’t met Foo Fighters kingpin Dave Grohl in real life, but you can at least hear him sing about it in “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl,” a new song written by Williams for the upcoming MTV show “I Just Want My Pants Back.”
Williams has come on as the show’s Guest Composer, which will feature nearly 20 songs written by the Wavves frontman both exclusively for the show and the band’s upcoming Life Sux EP. After seeing the pilot about a group of college graduates living in Brooklyn –- insert your favorite hipster joke here -– Williams quickly composed the tracks; some as new songs and others taken from past unused demos. Taken from David J. Rosen’s book of the same name, the show is produced by Doug Liman, who, as the director of “Swingers,” knows a bit about angst in your 20s.
You won’t be able to see “I Just Want My Pants Back” regularly until next year, but we’ve got the debut episode premiering right after tonight’s VMAs at 11 p.m. But if you’re fiending for the new track, we’ve got a free download of “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl” below. You’re welcome.
Life Sux will be released September 20 via Williams’ own Ghost Ramp label. An as-yet-untitled full-length will be available later this year.
