A new trailer for "Sonic Highways", the upcoming eight-part HBO documentary that chronicles the making of FOO FIGHTERS' new album of the same name, features a snippet of the band's new song "The Feast & The Famine". Check it out below.
The album arrives on November 10, while the eight-part series, which was directed by FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, premieres on October 17.
The TV series documents the making of the album at iconic studios in eight different cities — Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. — plus the history of each city's musical roots, scenes and the studio itself. Grohl interviewed a number of personalities for the series, including Slash, Dan Auerbach of the BLACK KEYS, LL Cool J, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Pharrell Williams, Joan Jett, CHEAP TRICK ‘s Rick Nielsen, Paul Stanley of KISS, Joe Walsh, ZZ TOP's Billy F. Gibbons, Macklemore, Buddy Guy and even President Barack Obama.
Dave Grohl said in a previous trailer, "I really believe the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result."
At another point in the trailer, Grohl remarked, "This is a musical map of America. It's a chronicling of our journey to unravel our musical identity."
