Back in April, Apple TV+ announced a new series called Watch the Sound, hosted by the famed producer Mark Ronson and featuring a variety of guest artists, including Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl. Now, a trailer for the show has arrived.
The clip features both the Beatles legend and the Foo Fighters frontman as they talk with Ronson about their approach to songwriting — specifically when it comes to, well, the “sound” of music.
“I’ve always been obsessed with how things sound,” Ronson shares. “It’s the difference between a great song and an iconic recording.”
In one segment, Ronson asks McCartney about the “seagull” sample on the Beatles’ Revolver song “Tomorrow Never Knows.”
“I think it’s just me,” McCartney says. “Pure genius, Mark.”
Also in the preview, Grohl ponders, “I didn’t need words. I just needed sounds.”
Watch the Sound also features Sean Ono Lennon, ex-Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor, Mike D and Ad-Rock of Beastie Boys, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, and many others. It premieres July 30 on Apple TV+.
