Every year the Burberry show is one of the highlights of fashion week, not only for its 'We want it all' collections but also for its emotive show soundtracks. And now everyone can enjoy the music the past 17 years with the launch of a dedicated playlist on Apple Music.
The list was curated by Burberry president and chief creative officer Christopher Bailey, who often booked live performances for the brand’s runway shows. ‘17 Years of Soundtracks is the perfect way to celebrate the incredible roster of musicians who have helped shape my time at Burberry,” said Bailey. “Be it directly through exclusive recordings, or through lending their songs as the backdrop to our experiences. This patchwork of tracks is a musical tribute to Burberry’s past, present and future, which I hope will not only introduce new music to audiences but also allow for some musical rediscovery.'
The playlist features more than 200 songs, including ones used for the runway shows by musicians such as Adele, Pet Shop Boys, Elton John and The Cure. There are also tracks from artists who have performed for Burberry Live events including Benjamin Clementine, George Ezra, Jake Bugg and Tom Odell alongside interviews with George Craig and Alison Moyet.
‘Christopher and the team at Burberry were some of the first people to support me and my music right at the beginning of my career. There was something exciting about closing the Burberry show in 2013 because playing at a fashion show wasn't something I had done before,' said Tom Odell in a statement.
The playlist is available now with more music being added next week, including tracks from Bailey’s final outing for the brand, which is scheduled to take place on February 17th.
