Song Exploder, the long-running popular podcast where musicians take apart their songs and tell the story of how they were made, is coming to Netflix as a TV series October 2. Based on a new trailer and the release accompanying it, the show’s premise is based upon the podcast, which originally debuted in 2014.
“As a teenager, I used to sit in my room and listen to music while poring over the lyrics and liner notes and artwork until I could almost feel myself living in the world of an artist,” says Hrishikesh Hirway, who created the podcast. “It was the most incredible feeling, and with Song Exploder, I wanted to take that feeling and go even further. It’s been so exciting to turn it into a television show, because it’s provided a chance to immerse yourself–and the ideas behind the music–in a deeper way than I ever imagined.”
