With many people around the world staying at home right now due to the ongoing pandemic, listening to music is a great way to pass the time. In response to this, Spotify has released a brand new collection of playlists meant to accompany stay-at-home activities. The collection, Listening Together, features five playlists: At Home Together, Cooking Together, Gaming Together, Meditating Together and Working Out Together. Each playlist was created by a different celebrity.
Dolly Parton handpicked the At Home Together playlist using songs she has enjoyed listening to during quarantine. The collection includes tunes from Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Andress, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini and many more artists from various genres. The playlist also features a personal video message from the singer.
“Listening to music brings me such hope and joy even during these hard times, so keep streaming joy into your day today, and keep the faith,” she says in the video. “We’re going to be alright.”
The other Listening Together playlists were created by Selena Gomez, Lil Yachty, Kiana Ledé and Normani.
In addition to the personally-curated playlist from Parton, fans can now enjoy six of her classic albums that were re-released to streaming platforms on April 10. These albums include “Better Day,” “For God And Country,” “Halos And Horns,” “Little Sparrow,” “Live And Well,” and “Those Were The Days.”
“Surprise,” she wrote on social media at the time of the release. “93 of your favorite classics are finally available again online! I hope these songs bring some light into your life during these hard times.”
