The latest 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 a lesser-known side of the 2016 presidential candidates: their taste in music. Is Bernie Sanders’ folk album for real? Is Hillary Clinton really a Lana Del Rey fan? Is Chris Christie’s favorite Springsteen album really Magic? And why does Ben Carson like “MacArthur Park” so much? Rolling Stone writers and critics delve deep into these important election-season questions.
With the Grammy Awards just one week away, we’ve also got a close look at the real meaning of this year’s ceremony, which will include performances from Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Chris Stapleton and more. And, as always, we’ll tip you off to some of the music that’s in rotation at the RS office – this week, the list includes “Wood,” a lush solo track by recently departed Vampire Weekend co-founder Rostam Batmanglij.
Rolling Stone Music Now, hosted by Executive Editor Nathan Brackett, is a 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.
