Singer-songwriter Charli XCX is hosting a brand new podcast for BBC Sounds, and it starts next week. Her first stand-alone podcast for the network, Charli XCX's Best Song Ever, centres around the singer spending each episode chatting to special celebrity guests about all the different songs that have been a huge part of shaping their lives. Featuring the likes of Addison Rae, Beabadoobee, Mark Ronson, Benny Drama, Barbie Ferreira, Tove Lo, Christine and the Queens, and Caroline Polachek, the podcast consist of 20 episodes airing on a weekly basis.
"The reason I wanted to do this podcast is because I love talking to people, and I love exploring the emotional connection any person can have with music," Charli said of the new podcast. "Songs that soundtrack specific moments in life can amplify and affect a moment drastically, and so I wanted to explore what those moments and songs are with some of my favourite creative people. In every conversation I've had, I've learnt something brand new about each guest, and I feel like I've gotten to know each and everyone one of them a little bit more."
The first episode of Charli XCX's Best Song Ever will air on BBC Sounds on 9 Aug.
