A playlist of songs that have helped to inspire my recent ‘Sorrow’ project.
After last week’s deluge of playlists from Questlove and KCRW, we turned our attention back to you guys—and you didn’t disappoint. Things got a little more upbeat this week, thanks in no small part to new albums from St. Vincent and Kendrick Lamar’s compatriot Schoolboy Q. (Also, in Beyonce-like fashion, Kid Cudi dropped a surprise iTunes bomb on everyone the other night, so you know we had to throw something from that in.) As usual, we’ve added the tracks to our ongoing Spotify playlist of great new music, as well as creating a standalone YouTube playlist for this week. Keep the recommendations coming, people.
So listen up: we’ve got your sensational weekend playlist right here.
