Bound by the same innovative spirit and a shared passion for creativity, BMW partnered up with renowned presenter Edith Bowman to bring you ‘Play Next’, a podcast series unlike any other.

Edith Bowman

In this ten-episode journey, Edith has welcomed the most incredible guests in an effort to unravel what the future of music looks like. The ‘Play Next’ adventure started with Gilles Peterson and the future of festivals, followed by the legendary great Hans Zimmer discussing all things music and technology. And, from there, this unique sonic voyage just kept going from strength to strength: from Skunk Anansie’s Skin delving into the power of music to spark social change, to Disclosure’s mastery of the art of teamwork, Fay Milton’s take on sustainability in music or Bastille’s Dan Smith unpacking creativity and connection.



All of these exciting interviews were, of course, accompanied by the most amazing new tracks from ground-breaking artists such as Dylan Cartlidge, Elliot Moss, PLGRMS, and Tune-Yards - all of which are collated on the BMW Play Next Spotify Playlist.
