WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 11: (EDITORS NOTE: Images not to be used for third party commercial promotional use.) Foo Fighters perform on stage during the iHeartRadio Foo FAnthem Show at The Anthem on October 11 2017 in Washington, DC.

There were rumblings a couple of weeks ago about how Dave Grohl recorded an epic 23-minute song, and now we have a better idea of how that track came to be.

Grohl announced a new two-part documentary called Play, which is slated for release on August 10.  The whole documentary was inspired by the music lessons his own children take.

“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,” said Grohl in a statement.  “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.”

Per Rolling Stone, the first part of the documentary will focus on the behind-the-scenes action of prepping for Grohl’s 23-minute musical marathon song, while the second part is the performance of the song itself.

Play is currently available for pre-order.
