Finally a new music show that may actually be worth our time. This seven part series is led by brilliant music aficionado, Zane Lowe, which leads us to assume that perhaps indeed, this might be pretty good. Created in partnership with Relentless Energy Drink, the show will air on MTV Music with each 30min episode focusing on one artist/band as Zane explores their influences, their journey, milestones in their careers and the new generation of music which keeps them excited for the future.
The line-up involved is exciting, current: Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, Queens of the Stone Age, Chase & Status, Jake Bugg, Biffy Clyro and Nas. The shows will be filmed in unique studio settings scattered around the world including Los Angeles, London, Slovenia and New York.
“I’m excited! This is the type of TV show I’ve wanted to do for a really long time. We’re attempting to re-create some of the amazing journeys that these artists have been on, as they tell us about the people, the records and the experiences that have brought them to where they are today. We are going to travel the world looking for the best stories from some of the best musicians around, who will also be giving us some incredible live performances.”
And we must say, we’re excited too. Catch the first show on MTV Music on July 6th, 9.30pm.
