Sonos is launching launched Object of Sound, a music and culture podcast, hosted by poet and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib. It will stream on Sonos Radio in addition to all podcast platforms.
Object of Sound aims to offer multiple ways to discover new music in an age of algorithmic playlists.
Each week, Object of Sound will explore topics – from what makes a great cover song to the art of male vulnerability – with guests like Moses Sumney, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, and Open Mike Eagle. Every episode culminates with one of Abdurraqib’s playlists themed to the topic and a deep dive into why he chose each track.
Episode #1 launches Friday
