Official Charts is this month launching a brand new podcast series celebrating many of the biggest names in UK music.
Official Charts: Take the Hit will ask music stars questions based on the UK’s best-selling singles of all time. When did they last ‘Get Lucky’? What did they ‘Wannabe’ when they were growing up? What is the highest ‘Price Tag’ item they own?
Launching on Tuesday 16th April, Episode 1 features BRIT’s Best Newcomer and recent Number 1 Album act Tom Walker. Tom talks about his musical journey so far, proposing to his girlfriend and his Nan being the inspiration behind a new song on his Number 1 album What a Time to be Alive:
“My gran is 81 years old and one night we sat together for 4 hours and we shared a couple of bottles of wine and she was telling me all the amazing stories in her life, the good and the bad. There was a lot of stuff I’d heard about as a kid, but she went into detail about some of the big events in her life and it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.”
Hosted by OfficialCharts.com Editor Rob Copsey, the podcast asks music personalities the questions that you never knew you needed answers to.
Rob comments, “Recording the Official Charts: Take the Hit podcast has been so much fun already. Using themes based on the UK’s best-selling singles of all-time chart has really allowed artists to tell stories and share memories from areas of their lives and careers that we’re not used to hearing about.”
Official Charts: Take The Hit is hosted and supported by Acast, the UK’s leading podcast service (My Dad wrote a Porno, Jessie Ware’s Table Manners). The podcast is available on all major podcast apps including Acast, iTunes and Spotify.
Each Tuesday a new episode of Official Charts: Take The Hit will be released with the first series guests including; 9 time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles talking partying with Barrack Obama; Steps’ Claire Richards reflecting on being asked to writhe around in oil for one of the group’s most memorable videos; Scott Mills talks about being romantically linked to Paris Hilton and Freya Ridings explains how she got Game Of Thrones alumni Maisie Williams and Lena Headey involved in her latest video.
