FKA twigs, D’Angelo, Björk, and The Chemical Brothers to Curate New Sonos Radio Stations

    Sonos has announced a new series of artist-curated radio stations coming to Sonos Radio and Sonos Radio HD. The series will launch with D’Angelo’s Feverish Fantazmagoria on January 13, followed by FKA twigs’ main squeeze programme on February 10, Björk’s 21 years worth of wave files liquidated into a stream on February 24, and The Chemical Brothers’ Radio Chemical on March 2.

    The subscription radio streaming service has also announced a new hip-hop station, Blacksmith Radio, to be curated by Corey Smyth. A new podcast, Object of Sound, is set to debut on January 13 with three episodes, featuring special guests Sudan Archive, Jenna Wortham, Kimberly Drew, Jeff Tweedy, and more. New episodes will come out every Friday, beginning on January 15 with an episode featuring Moses Sumney.

    On Instagram, Björk wrote that she is “quite thrilled to have had a reason to go through 21 years of music-file collecting.” She added: “since my first laptop i have been cd shopping, awkward cassette finding, vinyl searching in secret stores on my travels and gathered them all into a library of gorgeous wave-files. it was only a question of time before i would share them and then in yet another form: them clouds and streams . a lot of my heart belongs there … unbelievable memories with friends, loved ones, dj-ing in little bars, all sorts of occasions possible, in boats, cars, planes. here is music for weddings, solitudes, dancing, friendly chess matches or hikes… i thank all the musicians who have saved my life repeatedly through the years and hope you enjoy this as much as i have.”

    In a statement, twigs said: “As an artist I’ve always been inspired by music that creates a world. 360° visionaries like Prince, André 3000 and Grace Jones have always made me fall in love with music over and over again.” The main squeeze station, she adds: “includes all the amazing artists that have helped shape my world – music I like to get ready to with my friends, songs that have got me through heartbreaks, backstage nerves, and nights out.”
