•     New podcast series featuring discussions with pioneers in the music industry.
•     Hans Zimmer and Gilles Peterson among first guests.
•     Series to introduce up and coming new talent personally chosen by Edith.
•     Episode 1 available to stream from Wednesday 12 August.

Edith Bowman will host a brand new 10-part podcast series that talks to pioneers in music on a range of topics facing the industry. Play Next will also feature tracks from Edith’s top picks of new artists to have on your radar. Episode 1 is available to stream from Wednesday 12 August.

The Play Next podcast series will invite some of the key players in music to take a deeper look at the big topics facing the industry, including the future of festivals in a post COVID‑19 world, the role of technology in music production and where it goes next, and the power of music in driving change for social movements.

In episode one, Edith is joined by Gilles Peterson, broadcaster, DJ and founder of the Worldwide Festival in France, which in 2020 should have celebrated its 15th edition. The duo will discuss the future of festivals - arguably the subject on every music fan’s mind. Streaming from Wednesday 12 August, Gilles will share his views on where we go next. 

For episode two, Edith will be speaking with the legendary film-music composer Hans Zimmer to talk about how the production of music is changing. With cutting edge technology now available including AI tools (Artificial Intelligence Visual Artist) that can create music, Hans will share his views on what this means for the future of music production, and whether machines can ever be as creative as humans.

Each week, Edith will also share three tracks from some of the hottest new artists on the planet, shining a spotlight on the ones to watch and the tracks to stream.

Edith Bowman said: “I am thoroughly excited about this podcast. The music industry is an ever evolving machine and I’m looking forward to speaking to a fascinating collection of people at the top of their game to find out where we go from here.  But I’m particularly thrilled to be celebrating new music. It’s been exhilarating to explore and discover some wonderful bands and artists who are doing really fantastic things.”

Michelle Roberts, Marketing Director at BMW UK, added: “Music plays such an important role in our lives – from attending live events to simply listening in your car, it’s hard to imagine where we would be without it. This podcast talks to some of the innovators in this world, and also shines a light on the next generation of artists. We felt this was particularly important in 2020, as many of these artists haven’t had a platform this year. The Play Next partnership is an extension of BMW’s support for music. Like all other music fans, we might have had to cancel our festival plans this year, but we’re proud to bring this podcast to the listener.”

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
