Pharrell, Sir Elton John and Dr. Dre will help launch Apple Music’s new global radio station Beats 1 next Tuesday.

The stars will host their own shows on the station, which launches at 4pm NYC time with a show hosted by Zane Lowe.  St. Vincent, and Jaden Smith will also host shows which will see them curate the music themselves.

Meanwhile it’s also been announced that Eminem will provide the first guest interview on the station, with a pre-recorded conversation with Zane.

“To keep Beats 1 sounding fresh around the world, the station will alternate one- and two-hour programming blocks by established broadcasters with those by musicians and celebrities, who will host and plan the shows themselves” said Zane.

Beats 1 will be free to listen to, even for non-Apple Music subscribers.
