Spotify creates 'Ultimate Workout' playlist

Posted: 14 Jan 2014 09:25 PM PST

The music streaming platform wants to help motivate folks while they're exercising.

While New Year's resolutions are still fresh, Spotify has put together a playlist of songs scientifically proven to motivate gym-goers during a workout. The music streaming platform teamed up with the Music In Exercise and Sport Group at Brunel University in London to select the international hit songs that provided the best motivation during exercise.

Spotify and Brunel University specialists considered several criteria when selecting tracks for this ideal workout playlist. Songs were chosen in part for their popularity and tempo (BPM), but also for their musical style and lyrical content.

"A suitably motivational playlist can help to 'colour' the symptoms of exercise-related fatigue, like breathlessness and a beating heart, in such a way that they are interpreted in a more positive manner," explains Dr Costas Karageorghis, deputy head of research at Brunel University's School of Sport and Education.

Katy Perry's hit song Roar opens the playlist for a moderately fast-paced warm up, leading into a string of higher intensity tracks – including electronic music hits such as Daft Punk's single Get Lucky and Avicii's You Make Me – followed by a cool down to Lorde's Royals.

While composing its ultimate playlist, Spotify analysed 6.7 million workout playlists created by users, enabling it to determine that the most popular workout song in the world is Can't Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat Ray Dalton.

Here are the first 10 tracks in Spotify's Ultimate Workout playlist:

1. Roar – Katy Perry

2. Talk Dirty – Jason Derulo ft 2 Chainz

3. Skip To The Good Bit – Rizzle Kicks

4. Get Lucky – Daft Punk ft Pharrel Williams

5. Move – Little Mix

6. Need U (100%) – Duke Dumont ft A*M*E

7. You Make Me – Avicii

8. Feel My Rhythm – Viralites

9. Timber – Pitbull ft Ke$ha

10. Applause – Lady Gaga — AFP Relaxnews

U2 announces new song

Posted: 13 Jan 2014 10:55 PM PST

The Irish rock band's latest single, Invisible, will be available next month.

U2 has announced via its website that a new song, Invisible, is in the works as part of an initiative with AIDS charity (RED), of which lead singer Bono is a co-founder.

The band has been shooting a video in Los Angeles to accompany the single, according to the announcement on the website.

While little else is known about the new song, Internet speculation is rife that it will be revealed during the Super Bowl on Feb 2. Previous reports stated the band would annonce its forthcoming album at the American football event, with a release set for April.

U2's 13th studio album, which comes five years after No Line On The Horizon, is expected to be produced by Danger Mouse. The band, meanwhile, just won a Golden Globe over the weekend for the song Ordinary Love, which was featured on the soundtrack for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. — AFP Relaxnews
