RELEASED premieres every Thursday night at 11:45 p.m. ET just moments before artists drop their highly-anticipated music videos. Ahead of the worldwide countdown, the 15-minute episodes spotlight a featured artist and their new music, including exclusive news, special announcements and check-ins with artists, before it officially hits their YouTube channel.
"Season 1 of RELEASED featured some of the biggest artists in the world, bringing fans together to experience music moments that could only happen on YouTube. We are stoked to double down on Season 2," Lyor Cohen, global head of music for YouTube, tells Billboard in a statement. "The artists, the anticipation, the conversations and the premieres will continue to make Thursday nights on YouTube the place to be to see and hear new music from the world’s greatest musicians."
