'Final Sessions' will chronicle the 'long and fascinating narrative' behind the late singer-songwriter's first release in nearly 40 years.
25 years after his death, iconic singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson is getting his very own podcast.
In anticipation of the Nov. 22 release of Losst and Founnd -- a forthcoming album of Nilsson demos that collect the final recordings made by the late singer -- Warner Chappell has announced a new four-part limited series detailing the “long and fascinating narrative” behind the release. Entitled Final Sessions and hosted by Joe Levy (a contributor to Billboard), the podcast -- each season of which will delve into another of “music’s most notable releases” -- will also explore Nilsson’s music, his close friendship with The Beatles, his family life and how his backstory informed his songs.
“I’m a big Nilsson fan, so the news of Losst and Founnd was exciting in and of itself -- but to take a step back and talk about how this album came about, and delve into Nilsson’s songwriting process, it’s a really special thing,” said Warner Chappell Music Senior VP, Creative Services Ashley Winton in a statement. “This podcast is a great example of how Warner Chappell is finding and building opportunities that highlight the great songs in the WCM catalog and telling the incredible stories of our songwriters. I’m honored to be a part of it.”
