The Foo Fighters have officially announced that they will be releasing a brand new album later this year. The band’s eighth studio effort, the arrival of the forthcoming LP will preceeded by a special, as-of-yet untitled series on HBO that documents the band’s unique recording sessions. Directed by frontman Dave Grohl, the show will capture the group as they recorded each of the album’s eight songs in different cities: Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C. and New York, all in studios that according to a press release are “integral to the unique history and character of each location.”

With each song featuring local legends sitting in, Grohl even “held off on putting down words until the last day of each session in order to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.”

The goal of the album, and the series was to delve into the “singular regional identity of each city—showing how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn what impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns—ultimately celebrating their common bond. Every artist who appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with universal dreams of making music and making it big.”

The first episode of the series is set to premiere on the eve of the band’s 20th anniversary.
