Sonos announced on Wednesday it is adding new original music and content to Sonos Radio.

Sonos Sound System, the company’s ad-free radio station, is getting new original shows as follows:

  • Object of Sound: a weekly music and culture podcast hosted by poet and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib. The show will dive deep into the music of the moment and the stories surrounding the songs of today. Tune into Object of Sound on Sonos Radio, Mixcloud, and podcast platforms everywhere.
  • Black is Black: a monthly radio station hosted by DJ Lindsey examining the black diaspora’s impact on modern music. The station will premiere February 4 on Sonos Radio and Mixcloud.
  • Unsung: a bi-weekly show hosted by independent British music publication Crack Magazine, speaks to contemporary artists about their musical heroes who never caught the spotlight. Unsung is live now with new episodes launching every other week on Sonos Radio, Mixcloud and podcast platforms everywhere.
  • New Artist Radio Hours with Tiwa Savage, Chris Stapleton, A$AP Ferg, Yola, Japanese Breakfast, and Sun Ra Arkestra. Non Radio HD listeners can also enjoy radio hours from D’Angelo, FKA twigs, The Chemical Brothers and Björk, offering fans a glimpse into the intention behind their HD stations.

Sonos says the new content should be available “as early as next week”, in an email to iPhone in Canada.
