Foo Fighters have announced the special guests who will appear on their forthcoming documentary Sonic Highways as well as teasing two new tracks from the album.

Dolly Parton, Public Enemy's Chuck D, Willie Nelson, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys' Mike D, Joan Jett, Heart, Bonnie Raitt, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielson, Gary Clark Jr and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (from New Orleans) are all set to make an appearance.


It is unconfirmed how many of the above will also feature on the album (although frankly we're still holding out for a Dolly'n'Dave duet). The trailer was unveiled in the US via HBO Go.

Consequence Of Sound reports that 'Something From Nothing' a "a toned-down jam that seems to cut away right before a big breakout" featuring Grohl rhyming "city on fire" with "the arsonist choir". The other new track, a  "high-powered rocker" called 'Feast and Famine' sees "Grohl screaming out the song’s title after a hearty 'Amen!'"

Dave Grohl has described the show and album as "a love letter to the history of American music." The Sonic Highways documentary marks the band's journey across eight US cities to record eight tracks for their eighth album.

The series will start on BBC Four on Sunday 26 October. Four of the episodes will be broadast on BBC Four with a further two available on BBC iPlayer.
