The new short documentary gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process that drives artists to create their greatest songs.

Apple describes “The Spark” as a “series exploring the origin stories of some of the culture’s greatest songs and the creative journeys that underpin them.”

The first episode features Mexican-American singer-songwriter Cuco as he premieres his song “Under the Sun”. The video shows Cuco using his iPhone to quickly take notes as he begins to flesh out the lyrics of his songs.

Cuco explains how his environment, his family and his girlfriend play an important role in his ability to create music.

“Being in this place with really good people brought back that spark that I didn’t have before,” he says. “I could really do a lot more with my music. I want different generations to listen to it.”

The series will likely continue to be updated periodically with other established and upcoming artists featured in future episodes of “The Spark”.

Apple recently launched a new game show called “Play, Pause, Delete”, where artists are asked to make tough decisions about music, culture and everything in between.
