Dave Grohl announces new mini documentary PLAY

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced a new two-part mini-documentary PLAY, which will feature a new solo 23-minute performance.

The 23-minute track, also titled PLAY, will see Grohl play every instrument on the track. He’ll move from drums to guitar to bass, keyboards, and all other instruments.

Dave Grohl has announced PLAY, a new mini-documentary that’s set to culminate with the Foo Fighters frontman performing a solo 23-minute instrumental track.

Grohl says he created the new project to showcase “the rewards and challenges of dedicating ones life to playing and mastering a musical instrument.”

Watching my kids start to play music and learn to sing or play drums, it brings me back to the time when I was their age listening to albums, learning from listening… and when I take my kids to the place where they take their lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out,” Grohl says.

And even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out… it’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve on what you’ve learned.

PLAY will be released on August 10th, with a vinyl edition being released September 28.
