As Variety reports, a new three-part documentary about soft rock is coming to Paramount+. Sometimes When We Touch will start streaming on the platform starting January 3.
The subtitle of the documentary is “The Reign, Ruin, and Resurrection of Soft Rock,” and it deals with the history of the genre, which boomed in commercial popularity from the ’70s through the early ’80s. It also presents the commentaries of Kenny Loggins, L.A. Reid, Sheryl Crow, Susanna Hoffs, and more.
The series was co-produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and Gunpowder & Sky. It focuses on performers like Hall & Oates, Loggins, Lionel Richie, Air Supply, and Michael McDonald, among others. Richie, who had solo hits with soft rock cuts like “Hello” and “Truly,” was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
