Plug in the aux and listen while you drive to the Petal show near you!

Slow Dancer — “Don’t Believe”
I toured with Simon a while back and he is so good at what he does. This song is sexy and reminds me of Van Morrison and Bill Withers!
Aretha Franklin — “You Send Me”
I’ve been listening to a lot of soul music recently and Aretha’s version of this song gets me moving.
Sharon Van Etten — “Seventeen”
This song and her voice just stun me. I can’t wait for this record to come out.
Christine and the Queens — “Girlfriend”
Chris put out one of my favorite records of 2018. It has so much movement and is a really beautiful celebration of androgyny and questioning.
Sufjan Stevens — “Pittsfield”
I like to listen to Sufjan in the early morning on an overnight drive. One of my favorite songwriters, and this song will forever be special to me.
The Blue Nile — “Downtown Lights”
Hats is such an amazing record. I heard this song for the first time on tour in Leeds over the house speakers and I ran up to the board to ask what it was. It’s beautiful.
Frank Ocean — “Self Control”
I cannot wait for new Frank Ocean. In the meantime, this whole record and this song in particular are sublime.
Lizzo — “Juice”
LIZZO IS THE QUEEN. End of story.
