Dave Grohl unveils Play, a new 23-minute recording and mini-documentary: Watch

The Foo Fighters frontman has shared his instrumental project, which celebrates his "lifelong obsession" with playing music.

"Most musicians are always chasing the next challenge - you never feel satisfied and you never feel like you've completely mastered the instrument that you're playing".

In recent days, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been teasing an ambitious project called "Play", a 23-minute song that he wrote and played all the instruments on by himself.

The video kicks off with narrated BTS footage before pivoting into Grohl's 23-minute one-man-band endurance session.

"Nowadays, seeing my own kids start to play music and take lessons, it brings me back to the time when I was their age, chipping away at it and learning from my mistakes", Grohl says in the featurette that precedes the music.
