Former US President Barack Obama will make a podcast with rock star Bruce Springsteen, Spotify announced Monday.

The new podcast, "Renegades: Born in the USA," will feature the pair discussing issues from politics and the state of the US to fatherhood, marriage, and manhood, NBC News reported. The podcast will include eight episodes.

The podcast will be produced by Higher Ground, the Obamas' production company.

In a statement, Spotify wrote: "It is a personal, in-depth discussion between two friends exploring their pasts, their beliefs, and the country that they love — as it was, as it is, and as it ought to be going forward."

The statement added that Obama and Springsteen "have formed a deep friendship since they first met on the campaign trail in 2008."
