As summer is drawing to a close, many of us are trying to pack in a final vacation before the city swings back into full gear. Many more of us are coming home (welcome back students!). As such This Week’s Playlist: Roam Wide and Return is built around travel.

This collection of songs explores a broad range of emotions provoked by journeys long and short, from the excitement and wonder of exploring new lands to profound homesickness. Love emerges as a repeated motif, loves that withstand the distance, loves to cross continents for and the agony of loves left behind.

Crank us up as part of your road trip soundtrack or just sit back and take a journey in your mind.
