A playlist often serves a number of roles in a workout. When you need to get going with minimal fuss, it can draw on familiar inspirations. If you′re multi-tasking, it can provide a way to stay in shape while surveying what′s new in music. In this case, we′ve tried to split the difference with a long mix that recaps a few of the most popular running tracks from the last few months.
The list kicks off with one collaboration between The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and winds down with another featuring Katy Perry and Skip Marley. In between, you′ll find proven motivation from pop favorites like Lady Gaga and Sia. Elsewhere, you′ll find club titans like Calvin Harris and Diplo. Lastly, underplayed gems from DJ Khaled and Gorillaz keep the mix from lulling into predictability.
The other advantage of a 60-minute mix is that it′ll keep you in motion during your longer sessions. Alternatively, you can use it during a shorter session and skip over the tracks that don′t suit your tastes. However you use the mix, the picks await below.
