We love Dave Grohl as a musician and as a famously-lovely human being. But even for us, the prospect of sitting through a 23-minute instrumental track where he plays every single instrument might be a tough sell.

But ‘PLAY’ is actually quite a fun idea: a two-part mini-documentary directed by Grohl himself about the life of a musician. But the second part is the full 23-minute studio performance, with seven Daves – playing drums, bass, keyboards, percussion and three guitars – cut together as if they’re in the studio simultaneously.

Fans can choose to switch between the seven cameras trained on the different Grohls, as well as a ‘master’ cut. Available in its interactive form on its own website, it’s also been made available in non-interactive form in the UK on the BBC’s iPlayer service.
