New York, NY (May 12, 2021)—Cadence13, an Audacy company and leading premium podcast studio, today announced the launch of 4D with Demi Lovato, the first-ever podcast from Grammy-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato, renowned singer, actress, and activist. 4D with Demi Lovato is a presentation of OBB Sound, the audio division of Michael D. Ratner’s OBB Media, Scooter Braun’s SB Projects, and Cadence13.
Coming off the heels of Demi’s critically acclaimed YouTube documentary “Dancing with the Devil,” which was the opening night headliner of SXSW Film Festival 2021, and chart-topping album “Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over,” Lovato will share and explore what’s on her heart and in the corners of her mind—curiosities, experiences, movements, and voices that raise the collective frequency of her community of listeners and fans so they can experience life in 4D.
The weekly show will feature Lovato in conversation with a wide range of notable guests, including ALOK, Glennon Doyle, Chelsea Handler, Jane Fonda, and Jameela Jamil, with more to be announced. Lovato will also be joined by social activists, survivors, entrepreneurs, artists, and others to explore issues that are important to Demi, including mental health, LGBTQIA+ rights, equity and justice, body positivity, art, the environment, and activism.
4D With Demi Lovato will launch on May 19, 2021 on Apple Podcasts, Audacy, Spotify and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available on Wednesdays. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: https://link.chtbl.com/4DPR.
Cutting across mediums, an accompanying video version of every episode of 4D with Demi Lovato will be available on Lovato’s YouTube page every Wednesday, offering audiences, and Demi’s 20M followers, multiple formats to engage with the podcast.
“Living in the Fourth Dimension means existing consciously in both time and space, but for me, it means having conversations that transcend the typical discourse,” said Lovato. “That’s my goal with this podcast. With my production partners at Cadence13 and OBB Sound, the 4D podcast will be my place to highlight causes that are close to my heart and elevate my guests’ platforms to an audience they might not have previously reached. I want to bring listeners with me to learn from experts about timely topics and create a healthy discussion that ultimately cultivates more compassion for one another.”
“Demi’s powerful, singular voice, along with her fierce candor, courage, and conviction, have always resonated with millions of fans around the world,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “It’s this strength and authenticity that make Demi a perfect fit for this space, and we’re so honored to partner with her and the amazingly talented teams at SBP and OBB, and to welcome all of them into the Cadence13 family.”
