Music superstar and avid runner Ellie Goulding composed an original mix of her own songs for Spotify Running
Spotify Running is a game changer, created to give you a non-stop mix of your favorite music, all perfectly synced to your stride. You pick your tempo and Spotify will automatically play tunes timed to your steps—making you both a faster and happier runner. (After all, the right music is scientifically proven to help you run at your best.)
Now, the music platform is introducing the latest from Spotify Running: 'Escape by Ellie Goulding.' The original compilation from the British superstar—and our kickass, six-pack-abs-rocking-December cover girl—is a combination of old and new remixes from Goulding and is designed as an escape for runners. Fitting, considering Goulding is an avid runner herself (she's completed five half-marathons!) and often describes running as an escape from the pressures of work and life on the road.
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to create a unique mix for Spotify Running,” says Goulding. “Health is something I’m very passionate about, with music playing a big part in my personal fitness regime. That’s why it was such an exciting challenge to create a mix of my own songs—old and new—that could become a part of other people’s regimes.”
Cue up her compilation on the Spotify app, and check out an exclusive playlist from Goulding—straight out of our December issue—to hear the songs she's currently working out to.
