It's  David Bowie, Queen, Paul McCartney  and  Janes Addiction  all rolled up into one -- those are the words of  Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins , describing the songs that bandmate Dave Grohl helped him work out for Hawkins' new Foo side project  Birds of Satan . 

Hawkins tells  NME , "Dave was only there for two days, but when he came in, I'm like, 'I wanna write a song that's prog-rock fandango with insanity parts flying around everywhere.'"  "I want it to sound like [Queen]'s 'March Of The Black Queen' meets 'Station To Station' by Bowie meets...'Band On The Run' meets 'Three Days' by Jane's Addiction. And we did it, in one day." 

In all, Grohl helped out with several songs and also played drums. 

Birds of Satan consists of  Hawkins, Wiley Hodgden  and  Mick Murphy . The band's first album is self-titled and features guest appearances from Grohl, as well as Foo Fighter  Pat Smear  and touring Foo members  Rami Jaffee  and  Drew Hester .

Birds of Satan will release its first album on April 15. It's available for preorder now, with all preorders receiving immediate access to an instant download of a song called "Thanks for the Line."

Here is the track listing:
