Warner Music Group (WMG) and Spotify have struck a deal to develop original podcasts centered around the record company's artists, songwriters and music catalog, the new partners announced today (April 15).
The podcasts will cover topics like the stories behind hit songs and behind-the-scenes looks at superstar artists from WMG's roster of labels and artists, which includes the likes of Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Dua Lipa.
"We’re excited to take this step forward with Spotify as we strengthen and deepen our existing partnership," said WMG executive vp, business development and chief digital officer Oana Ruxandra. "Warner Music Podcasts provide an opportunity to unlock value for artists and songwriters by delivering fresh and unique stories to music to fans across the globe. We look forward to working with Spotify to experiment and drive growth in podcasting."
