The trailer features a snippet of the album's opening track, 'Something From Nothing'. Click above to watch the trailer for the show, which will premiere Stateside on HBO on October 17. The show follows the band as they record their new LP, visiting eight different US cities and recording a song in each location, collaborating with local musicians and producers. "I really believe that the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result," says frontman Dave Grohl in the trailer, which features Slash, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Chuck D, Joan Jett, Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Buddy Guy, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and US President Barack Obama. "This is a musical map of America," adds Grohl.

The album will be released on November 10 and is the band's eighth studio effort. The vinyl release of 'Sonic Highways' will come with an assortment of nine different covers including eight themed around one of the cities in which the album was recorded: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, DC.

'Sonic Highways' tracklist:

'Something From Nothing'
'The Feast and The Famine'
'Congregation'
'What Did I Do?/God As My Witness'
'Outside'
'In The Clear'
'Subterranean'
