The project has been produced by the streaming giant in partnership with BBC Studios and is titled Stay Free: The Story Of The Clash. It's said to examine “the rise, reign and ferocious self-destruction of one of music’s most prolific bands.”

It’s narrated by Public Enemy and Prophets Of Rage member Chuck D – and the first episode titled Lost Boys is available to listen to now (opens in new tab).

Chuck D says: “It’s an honour heading up this new podcast Stay Free: The Story of The Clash. I was, and am, a big fan of their music. We were always tackling very similar social and political issues.”

Spotify have also released a trailer for the series which can be found below.
