The Grammy Museum — closed until further notice due to the coronavirus — announced Wednesday it will debut never-before-released interviews with artists ranging from Billie Eilish and Finneas to Bob Newhart and Kool & The Gang.
The content comes from the museum’s Public Programs digital series and the first round of artists will include Eilish and Finneas, Newhart, Brandi Carlile, Greta Van Fleet, Kool & The Gang, Larkin Poe, Scarypoolparty, X Ambassadors and Yola.
Since the museum opened 12 years ago at L.A. Live near Staples Center, it has staged more than 900 public programs in its 200-seat Clive Davis Theater.
“At the Grammy Museum, we believe that music has the power to bring us together, strengthen our sense of community and drive us forward — especially in times when it feels like we are being pulled apart,” said Michael Sticka, the museum’s president.
“The Grammy Museum’s doors may be closed, but our mission isn’t,” he said. “This is about our community, nationwide, even globally. It is our privilege to share these never-before-released interviews by beloved artists with you and bring them into your homes.”
Sticka said he hoped people will find solace and inspiration in the free digital content, which can be viewed at www.grammymuseum.org.
The museum will also release educational content and lessons plans during the closure, sharing daily playlists and ideas curated by its staff on Spotify.
Exhibit slideshows featuring past exhibitions will also be released every Friday, leading off with “X: 40 Years of Punk in Los Angeles” on Friday.
The interview with Scarypoolparty was set to be released Wednesday and a full schedule of release dates can be found at www.grammymuseum.org.
