A Power Hour Playlist To Launch Your Summer Runs

With spring in full bloom, it’s time to get back outdoors. To score your return to the world at large, we’ve compiled an hour of recent hits. On a practical basis, a longer playlist gives you more options. Moreover, there are plenty of winter smashes that sound even better out in the fresh air.

The list kicks off with a slow-burning number from Shawn Mendes and closes out with a collaboration that was featured in the box office smash Black Panther. In between, you’ll find rock from Walk the Moon and Jack White alongside rap from Macklemore and Jay-Z. Pop tunes from Hailee Steinfeld and Dua Lipa are also included alongside remixes featuring Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars.

While the genres change throughout, familiarity remains relatively constant as the tracks move from hit to hit. To that end, the aim here isn’t to turn you on to something new; instead, the list provides a simple way to put a few months’ worth of lively, recognizable tunes to work in the service of your summer runs. So, pick a few or download them wholesale, and get out the door.
