A new six-part documentary coming exclusively to Apple TV+ on July 30 will shed light on the revolutionary technologies that have shaped the music industry, and talk to musicians and creators about the unique tools that have influenced their work.

Each episode will follow Ronson as he uncovers the untold stories behind music creation and lengths producers will go to…

Ronson received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Grammy for co-writing Shallow, as performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in  A Star is Born.

His first album, Here comes the Fuzz, was released in 2003. It was followed by Version (2007),  Record Collection (2010), Uptown Special (2015) and Late Night Feelings (2019).

Each episode of Watch The Sound will follow Ronson as he uncovers the untold stories behind music creation and the lengths producers and creators are willing to go to find the perfect sound.
