At Home With Annie Lennox: The Playlist

“I've been playing some of my songs, kind of exploring them and realising that they really suit the context of what is happening now,” Annie Lennox says about revisiting her extensive catalogue since lockdowns began. “It's almost like they're looking into the future. This experience is so unusual, so you try to carry on like everything is kind of normal and you're always aware that there's something not quite right.” In her comprehensive interview with Zane Lowe, the singer-songwriter talks about her continuing fight for marginalised people, singing Queen’s “Under Pressure” with David Bowie at a Freddie Mercury tribute show and the challenges of having a professional relationship with former Eurythmics partner Dave Stewart. She also dives into her love of soul music, represented here on this exclusive Apple Music playlist curated by Lennox herself featuring the likes of TLC, The Staple Singers, Tina Turner and Lauryn Hill. “Utter genius, you know? Pure genius,” Lennox says about Hill’s groundbreaking 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. “I feel like when music works, it's a transcendent thing. These songs contain cultural mythologies that are mirrored back to us.”
