Following the release of his highly-acclaimed documentary film Sound City, in which Grohl uncovered stories about the fabled Los Angeles recording studio, the Foo Fighters frontman will stop at Nirvana producer Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio in Chicago. He will then move to Rancho De La Luna studios in California, where the Queens Of The Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys have recorded, as well as key studios in Nashville, New York and Seattle, among others.

The Foo Fighters will cut a track in each place, and at the end of the series they will release the album created during the show, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the band.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Grohl said: “I know what it sounds like and I honestly think the entire concept is really going to take people by surprise and it sounds nuts.”

Grohl will interview many familiar faces on his journey, such as Kiss frontman Paul Stanley, Joe Walsh from The Eagles and Nancy Wilson from Heart.
