Rolling Stone is coming to your earphones and stereos – starting right now. The inaugural episode of Rolling Stone Music Now, our first-ever podcast, is now available. Listen and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or check it out below.
In this episode, we take a look at the biggest music story of the year so far: David Bowie’s death and final burst creativity. After a decade of quiet, the star embarked on a remarkable comeback with 2013’s The Next Day and 2016’s Blackstar, even as he struggled with illness. We have the inside story, featuring a heartbreaking interview with Bowie’s longtime producer and friend Tony Visconti. We also have exclusive interviews on Bowie’s legacy with Beck, Mick Jagger and Nile Rodgers.
Our panel of Rolling Stone writers and editors also discusses Rihanna’s Anti and the age of the surprise album. And make sure to stick around for our reader mail segment.
Rolling Stone Music Now, hosted by Executive Editor Nathan Brackett, is a new weekly podcast that features interviews with marquee artists, a look inside the week’s hottest music news, a sampling of what’s playing in the Rolling Stone office and much more. Brackett is joined each week by a rotating panel of Rolling Stone’s writers and editors.
