Not to mention, drop some exclusive details on his upcoming tour and studio album. Follow Inside the Studio on iHeartRadio, or subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts.
Global superstar Andrea Bocelli is back with “Si” (Decca/Verve Records) -- his first album of newly written songs in 14 years, featuring collabs with Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and many others. We had a chance to sit down with Andrea and his son/protégé Matteo (who also appears on the album) to discuss his stellar career, the process of making this album and what his most dangerous hobbies might be.

You know the voice and you know the songs: “Any Way You Want It,” “Oh Sherrie,” and of course, the perennial fist-in-the-air power ballad (and “Sopranos” finale soundtrack) “Don’t Stop Believin'.” All those great lyrics and melodies came out of the heart, mind and larynx of one man: Steve Perry. After leaving Journey and stepping back from his successful solo career due to what he calls “PTSD,” he’s back with “Traces” (Fantasy Records). Get the full story on his long hiatus, the heartbreaking motivation that brought him back to music and much, much more.

This time around, we head north to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Why, you ask? Why, to sit down with some scrappy newcomer named Paul McCartney. Sir Paul lays out the process of making his new album – “Egypt Station” (Capitol Records), his first #1 chart debut in 36 years – and he also divulges some new stories from the Beatles days, everything from on-stage volume wars to the band’s mindset as they crafted their final masterpieces.

Join us, dear listener, on a journey into the dream life of Lenny Kravitz, who sits with our host Joe Levy and opines on his 30-something years as a rock and roll icon and hitmaker. Lenny breaks down the serpentine process of making his brand new album “Raise Vibration” (BMG Records), his unorthodox songwriting methods and his take on the state of the world. Special thanks to Lenny, BMG Records, Johnny Cash (you’ll see why) and the whole crew. Follow Inside the Studio on iHeartRadio, or subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts.
This time around on iHeartRadio Presents: Inside the Studio, host Joe Levy goes deep with Dave Matthews, on the heels of the release of his most recent (and record-setting) #1 album “Come Tomorrow” (RCA Records). Levy probes everything from the recent changes in the Dave Matthews Band lineup, Dave’s response to the backhanded compliment he receives in the hit film “Lady Bird” and why it looks like there’s no end in sight for the 50-something rocker. Special thanks to Dave and RCA Records. Follow Inside the Studio on iHeartRadio, or subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts.
On the debut episode of Inside the Studio, host Joe Levy sits down with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to discuss his first official solo album, “Post Traumatic”, and the process of creating music after the passing of his bandmate and friend Chester Bennington. Mike walks us through the inspiration for his new album and tracks like “Hold it Together”, “World’s on Fire” and more. Special thanks to Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park and Warner Bros. Records.
