The Foo Fighters are making a television series about recording their new album.

The rockers will release their latest record this year and fans will get an insight into the recording process with an accompanying TV show.

The as-yet-untitled HBO series will document the eight-city odyssey during which the record was created.

The band's Dave Grohl will direct the show, which will see the Foo Fighters "tap into the musical heritage and cultural fabric of eight cities - Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC and New York - basing themselves at a legendary studios integral to the unique history and character of each location".

One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in.

Dave said it would be "a love letter to the history of American music".

"Dave's heartfelt passion for this project is contagious and his talent as a musician and filmmaker is undeniable," said Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming.

"We are excited to go on this journey with him and the Foo Fighters for this insider's look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music."

The Foo Fighters' new album is the follow-up to 2011's Wasting Light, which won five Grammys in 2012.
