Shawn Mendes, Kendall Jenner and Chris Hemsworth are picking tunes for your perfect summertime playlists.
In a new Apple Music feature called “Summertimes Sounds”, stars including Jenner, Mendes, Hemsworth, Thomas Rhett, Kelsea Ballerini and Canadian stars such as Toronto celebrity chef Matty Matheson, London-born Olympian Alysha Newman, Vancouver fitness star Phil Mackenzie and Quebec singing sensation Marie-Mae are curating playlists with their favourite summertime anthems.
Each star will select his or her favourite tunes for Apple Music listeners to enjoy as the soundtrack to summer 2019.
Mendes’ “Summer Mix” features tracks like “Island In The Sun” by Weezer, “Sundress” by ASAP Rocky and his own “Lost In Japan”.
Matheson hopes his “Summer Rules Forever” playlist will remind listeners of vacations in the past. “All of these songs remind me of summer, Neil Young’s ‘On The Beach’ brings back so many memories of jumping in the lake with my best friends,” he said in a statement. “Neil Young, will you be my best friend?”
Meanwhile, Mae has the perfect cottage playlist. “For several years we have been spending all our summers at the cottage,” she said. “My first family recollection with my daughter and boyfriend emanate from there. There is no better place to be when warmer weather finally arrives. Matt Holubowski passed by our cottage once to play us some new music before it was released. The song ‘Inhale/Exhale’ will always hold a special place for me. Summer, music, great food and passionate friends. You need nothing else to find happiness.”
“Summertime Sounds” is available now, exclusively for Apple Music subscribers.
