PLAY is a two part mini-documentary directed by the Foo Fighters frontman, which celebrates "the rewards and challenges of dedicating one's life to playing music".

Dave Grohl has released his solo project, which features 23-minute-long instrumental.

Dubbed "Play", the single's recording process saw Dave record each instrument live in a single take (which means he had to start all over again from the top if he f*cked up) and he's dropped a matching music video of the whole process to prove it.

Foo Fighters recently hit the United Kingdom for a series of stadium shows and will soon be seen headlining their mini-festival CalJam on October 6th. Once you do that, you can also hover over "Choose Audio" to listen to the isolated track of the instrument you are watching or the complete master audio.

Play then segues into the titular 23-minute instrumental recording.

Also up for grabs are the music sheets, the input lists, and (if you're feeling really geeky) a floor plan of the live room Grohl played in. Somehow, Grohl managed to walk away from the session not only with his sanity intact, but a finished song, titled "PLAY". The ultimate take-away, Grohl says, is that "just like any kid, the reward is just to PLAY". Stay posted to the film's official website for more information.
