Apple continue their celebration of this friday’s Earth Day with 5 unique playlists that span genre and nature.
Apple have been commemorating the upcoming Earth Day since last Thursday with green shirts for retail employees, Apple store logos decorated with green leaves. Apple have even launched an app promotion called “Apps for Earth” that donates in-app purchases from partner apps to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Now Apple have launched five new playlists on their streaming service Apple Music, each celebrating a different part of nature and the preservation of our Earth. Each playlist features 22-25 songs covering a variety of genres and artists that relate directly or per chance to the Earth and it’s protection.
Here are the 5 playlists and what they represent:
Celebrating Mother Earth – From sun and sky to seas and trees, musicians play tribute to the natural world in this set of uplifting tunes. Songs included are from artists like The Beatles, Coldplay, U2, Peter Gabriel , Michael Jackson, John Denver, and Cat Stevens.
Power Off – Laidback, moody, contemplative tunes for when it’s time to chill. Songs included are from artists like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Sia, Adele, Maroon 5, Ryan Adams, and Alicia Keys.
