TeamRock is creating a series of programmes and podcasts from its rock magazine portfolio for Spotify.
The first commission is the Metal Hammer show and comes as the magazine celebrates its 30th anniversary. Named Metal Hammer: In Residence, the show will have exclusive access to top-flight artists, feature topical discussions by the magazine’s team of experts, as well as exclusive tracks from artists from around the globe.
Spotify Head of Original Content UK Rob Fitzpatrick said: “In Residence shows are On Demand Podcast-style radio shows presented by hand-picked artists and editorial masters who have a trusted, super-informed and utterly authentic voice within their field.
“Each one is hand-picked by Spotify’s Original Content team in recognition of their proven skills in finding, exploring and explaining the very best music around.
“We are thrilled to add the brilliant team at Metal Hammer, whose dedication to unearthing the planet’s most heavyweight sounds over the last 30 years been proved second to none.”
Metal Hammer: In Residence is monthly and launches in February.
