Dave Grohl has announced Play, a two-part documentary that showcases the genius at work playing seven different instruments within a 23-minute long song.   

Being released via streaming services on August 10, Grohl says the project is about “the rewards and challenges of dedicating one's 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,” he said.

“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.”

Part 1 of the Play documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the prep of the performance which is revealed in Part 2.

Roswell Films is behind the production, they have stated that “The online version of Play also includes a list of organizations where time, money and instruments can be donated to the cause…and places where musicians young and old alike can have the opportunity to play live music.”
