A new three-part documentary about soft rock is coming to Paramount+, as Variety reports. It’s titled Sometimes When We Touch, and it hits the streaming platform January 3. Watch the teaser trailer for it below.
Subtitled “The Reign, Ruin and Resurrection of Soft Rock,” the documentary digs into the history of the genre, which boomed in commercial popularity from the seventies through the early eighties. Sometimes When We Touch also features commentary from Kenny Loggins, L.A. Reid, Sheryl Crow, Susanna Hoffs, and more.
MTV Entertainment Studios co-produced Sometimes When We Touch with the studio 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.
