Skin Tings is a new podcast from Skunk Anansie’s lead singer Skin, featuring musical heroes, from Debbie Harry to Paul Weller and Arlo Parks.
Having been in the industry for over 30 years, Skin is an authority on the music scene. Fronting a highly influential band, making records and headlining festivals, Skin has also become known for challenging stereotypes within the music industry, including the lack of opportunities for black women.
Now acting as a role model for the future generation of aspiring female musicians, Skin continues to make music and tour with Skunk Anansie while also hosting her new weekly Absolute Radio show every Sunday evening.
New podcast Skin Tings, which launches today, is an extension of her radio show, featuring full-length interviews with famous friends, musical heroes and up and coming talent.
Speaking about the podcast, Skin said “My Absolute Radio show has been a brilliant opportunity to catch up with friends old and new and have a real heart to heart. But there’s only so much time on the radio! With each discussion so touching, interesting and inspiring, I wanted to give listeners the chance to hear the full uncut conversations in all their glory.”
Debbie Harry, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage’s Shirley Manson feature in the first three episodes released simultaneously today. Other guests in future episodes include Paul Weller, Arlo Parks and Joan Armatrading.
Skin Tings is available to download every Thursday from Apple Podcasts, Spotify, the Absolute Radio app, absoluteradio.co.uk, and all mainstream podcast providers.
