Fleet Music: Part II on Spotify

Music accompanies most people when driving, jogging or walking, sitting on the train, in the park or on the plane. Starting today we want to introduce a new section.

Every Friday – perfectly fitting for the weekend commute – our author Holger Spille will present well-known and often less well-known songs. Be it as a review of a complete new album or songs that have something to do with mobility in general and can be bundled under the umbrella term mobility and travel.

Our new car fleet playlist is meant to be mainstream – in the very best sense. Often playing next to the charts, but without excluding hits. The “Travel Safe” playlist will surprise, inspire and delight. There are already 20 titles in the car fleet playlist. Listening – after free registration – is worthwhile, and we look forward to feedback and of course the “heart” of the playlist.

Car Fleet on Spotify: These Are The Five New Songs

THE HIGHWAYMEN were a country supergroup formed in 1985 by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson. The first single “Highwayman” also marched straight to #1 on the US country charts.

With the GLASPERLENSPIEL duo from Lake Constance, it’s back to the electro-pop department: “Paris” from the 2015 album “Tag X” unfortunately went under a bit, the monster hit back then was the follow-up single “Geiles Leben”.

It’s difficult to get tickets if the British trio LONDON GRAMMAR even gets on a tour. “How Does It Feel” comes from the third album “California Soil”; Hanna Reid has one of the most impressive voices in the scene, which she wasn’t at all convinced of at first.

The Brit DAVID GRAY has not been able to make the big breakthrough in Germany so far, but in his home country there are three number 1 albums on the books, including “White Ladder” from 1998 from which “Sail Away” comes.

KREZIP was founded in 1997 by five students, three years later they celebrated the first number 1 album in the Netherlands. The band broke up in 2009 and reunited ten years later for their breakup anniversary to play a few shows for fun.

The enthusiasm of the fans was so great that they sold out the Ziggo Dome (capacity: 17,000) in Amsterdam three times. The album “Sweet High” reached number 2 and from it comes: “How Would You Feel”. KREZIP have not parted since then.

Car Fleet on Spotify: Those Were The First Five Songs

The German-Italian singer Luca Vasta not only contributes the first track to the new playlist with “Travel Safe” from the 2014 album “Alba”, but is also the namesake of this collection of the finest music.

The groove machine Fat Freddy’s Drop comes from New Zealand, “Boondigga” is from the album “Dr. Boondigga And The Big BW” from 2009.

Danny Vera, who has long been a superstar in his native Netherlands, also became known here in 2021 when he took second place in the Free European Song Contest with the wonderful song “Roller Coaster”. One would have no hesitation in attributing his voice to a country musician who grew up in Nashville.

Talking about voices: Lotte from Ravensburg has one of the most recognizable young German artists. Together with Max Giesinger, she landed a top 5 hit in the German airplay charts with “Auf das, was da noch wird”.

The voice of Lauren Mayberry, the singer of the Scottish electro-pop band Chvrches, is also unmistakable. She is featured on our playlist alongside Robert Smith (The Cure) and the song “How Not To Drown” which won Best Song in the Song By A UK Artist category at last year’s BandLab NME Awards.
