Hey y’all! It’s Press Play Tuesday! Wondering what the Gas Mask team listening to this week? Looking for some great new music for all of your feels and moods? Discover new music and fall in love with old favorites every week! Check out our playlist this week!
Baby It’s Cold Outside – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan
Is there a better tune as the heat is turning down outside? A classic Jazz tune covered more times than we can count, but we can promise that this is the best version! (In our humble opinion.)
Where You Lead – Carole King
With “The Gilmore Girls” revamp just around the corner, we are loving the original recording of the theme song. A perfect sweater weather song about love and embracing the selflessness of true love.
Boomerang – J.W. Cudd
It’s no secret that we’re loving J.W. Cudd’s new single, “Boomerang.” It’s hard to pick just one thing we love about J.W.’s pop country music, but if we had to, we’d say that it’s his ability to write amazing pick me up songs. As the seasons transition, you may find yourself feeling a little down, recent breakup, blues about life. Listen to Boomerang and you’ll find the strength within you that better things are coming your way!
Send My Love To Your New Lover – ADELE
If “Boomerang” has got you feeling empowered, ADELE’s “Send My Love To Your New Lover” is a great follow up to keep the vibes pumping! With fun guitar picking and ADELE’s signature voice, this track will keep you feeling good and moving forward with your day and days to follow!
Eet – Regina Spektor
There’s something about this song that just screams Fall to us. Whether it’s the poignant lyrics about moving through life and all of its anecdotal changes or the airy piano, “Eet” is a song that should be on any playlist that helps you breathe easier.
Sweet Pea – Amos Lee
“Sweet Pea” is one of our favorite love songs right now. “An oldie but goodie” indie folk tune by silky sounding singer – songwriter, Amos Lee. Full of bright ukulele strums, “Sweet Pea” is a sweet sentiment that could ring true if you have a sweet pea of your own this Fall!
Baby I’m A Star – Prince
Now to spice up this playlist a little bit, we finally are at a point where we can start listening to Prince’s music again. That his memory no longer warrants sorrow but appreciation and gratitude for what he left the world. What better way to share our love of Prince than this great track? We promise you’ll be dancing to this on loop.
Ringo – ATMOSPHERE
To celebrate ATMOSPHERE’s triumphant return, we’re bumping the single off the new album, “Fishing Blues” titled, “Ringo.” ATMOSPHERE fans won’t be disappointed by the catchy beat and fun lyrics featured in this song, and if you have yet to be introduced to the underground Hip Hop collective from the Midwest, Rhymesayers, “Ringo” is a great place to start.
Cranes In The Sky – Solange
There’s a reason that Beyonce and Solange Knowles are the first sisters in history to have #1 Albums in the same year. Solange’s new album, “A Seat At The Table” features many great tracks, but our favorite this week is “Cranes In The Sky.” We love everything about it. From the smooth tone to the lyrics, “Cranes In The Sky” makes Solange a star in her own right.
Delicate Cycle – The Uncluded
Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson. What!? Yes please! This unlikely duo of the Moldy Peaches vocalist and Hip Hop artist paired up a couple of years ago to form The Uncluded. With their unique voices, lyrical styles, and tasty beat we love “Delicate Cycle” this week whenever we’re feeling reflective.
Day Breaks – Norah Jones
The time has come, friends! Norah Jones has released a new album and we are over the moon about it. “Day Breaks” is the titular track from the album and is everything you’d want and a Norah Jones song and more. Reminiscent of “Come Away With Me” and tracks from her 2002 album, there’s nothing like a Norah Jones song to put you at peace after a long work day.
Wake Up Everybody – Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes
It’s a tumultuous time right now, and that is not exclusive to the United States. We all could use some encouragement and feel like we have the power to do something when we feel like we can’t. “Wake Up Everybody” is a great song to inspire us to do so. Teddy Pendergrass is even featured on it, and who doesn’t love a little Teddy?
Love Never Felt So Good – Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake
How do you shake off your Fall blues? Michael Jackson & JT, of course! Featured on the second posthumous album of the King Of Pop “Love Never Felt So Good” is the perfect pop song to get you moving and grooving whether you’re on your morning commute or getting ready for the weekend.
Me Too – Meghan Trainor
To round out our playlist, we’ve got a Meghan Trainor hit. Even with “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen,” the beat of “Me Too” is STILL stuck in our heads and you’re probably in the same boat! This song is so much of what Gas Mask is about that we had to include it in our playlist this week: having fun and loving yourself for all that you are no matter what anybody else says or thinks!
What do you think of our playlist? Any songs you think that we should check out?
