Barack Obama was a big supporter of music during his eight year run as President, putting together his famous Spotify playlists and frequently inviting artists like Chance The Rapper to perform at the White House.

Out of office, it looks like his support won’t come to a halt. Today, he unveiled his plans for the Obama Presidential Center, a three-building campus in Chicago that will include his presidential library, a museum, outdoor park, and an auditorium.

According to his website, the center “will be based on the South Side of Chicago but have projects all over the city, the country, and the world” and “will be a living, working center—an ongoing project where we will shape, together, what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century.”

CNN reports that Obama says his plans for the center include “a music recording studio where I can invite Chance (the Rapper) or Bruce Springsteen, depending on your taste, to come here and talk about how you can record music that has social commentary and meaning.”

Get an idea for what the center will look like in the short video below and see more details on his website.
