Obama, Slash, Pharrell Featured in Foo Fighters' Official 'Sonic Highways' Trailer
Foo Fighters have officially unveiled the official trailer for their upcoming HBO documentary series "Sonic Highways."

As reported, the show is set for an October 17 premiere and will serve as an announcement of the band's new album, due out on November 10 under the same title.

During the video, frontman Dave Grohl insists that the recording environment is a crucial factor for the final musical outcome. He further noted that the whole process, which saw the band traveling and recording in eight cities across the States, was not just about the most ambitious Foos album thus far, but about making a "love letter to the history of American music."

Apart from the Foo fold, the clip also features appearances from the likes of President Obama, Slash, Pharrell Williams, Joan Jett and more.

The band had previously unveiled the full track listing, along with nine different album covers available in a limited series only. More info here, give the trailer a look below.

UPDATE: The length of new tunes was recently unveiled by iTunes, confirming that despite Grohl's announcements, the new album won't be the longest effort in the Foo catalogue. And speaking of iTunes, pre-orders have officially kicked off! More here.
