Honne Serves Up a Chill Summer With Quarantine Playlist Featuring Tame Impala, Beabadoobee & More

Tim Toda


Honne unveiled their new single "No Song Without You" on Friday (June 12), giving fans their first taste of new music from the British electronic duo.

The track marks the act's follow-up to their 2018 sophomore album, Love Me / Love Me Not, which featured hits "Day 1," "Crying Over You," "Location Unknown" and more -- as well as their recent Billboard Live At-Home session, where they debuted a snippet of the single while raising money for mass incarceration nonprofit The Bail Project.

To celebrate release day for "No Song Without You," bandmates James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck shared a playlist of their favorite quarantine songs, exclusively with Billboard.

Featuring tracks by Clairo, Tame Impala, Beabadoobee and more, the playlist's ten tracks are the perfect soundtrack to chilling out during this unprecedented summer.

Check out Honne's exclusive quarantine playlist below.

Khruangbin, "August 10"

We’ve been in lockdown for quite a long time now and sometimes [we find ourselves] daydreaming about tours gone by. Missing the adventure of being in new places and meeting new people. And this track takes it back to hanging out on the tour bus after shows.

Whitney, "Golden Days"

You can shut your eyes and pretend you’re outside enjoying summer with this song. Something we all need right now.

Reuben James, "My Line"

This is a new track by our good friend and collaborator, Reuben James. So much groove and amazing musicianship, as well as featuring some other great artists -- Col3trane, Jay Prince, Vula and Soweto Kinch.

Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes, "Nightrider" (feat. Freddie Gibbs)

The title kind of says it all. And you might be seeing a pattern of chilled music here. Quarantine calls for music that you can kick back to and take your mind of any anxieties.

Clairo, "Softly"

Love the groove and production on this track. Clairo’s melodies and harmonies are always so wavy and interesting.

Tame Impala, "Elephant"

Tame Impala seemed to be performing at almost every festival we played at in the US last year, so this song takes us back to those times.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra, "Hunnybee"

This song has such interesting production and considered instrumental parts. Love how it gently grooves. Very relaxing.

Beabadoobee, "Coffee"

Until recently, we’ve only been able to go outside for one hour to exercise in the UK. So on Sunday mornings, we always go and sit on the balcony in the sun and have a coffee. Normally it rains a lot in England, so this wouldn’t be possible, but since lockdown began we’ve had the sunniest and driest spring on record. How unfortunate. Anyway, this song is great for those sunny Sunday mornings.

Choker, "Lucky"

I love how this track grows and changes, and ends up with such interesting instrumentation at the end. It’s a really special song.

Jacob Collier, "All I Need" (feat. Mahalia & Ty Dolla $ign)

You can always rely on Jacob Collier to make music that will take you on an unexpected journey. And this song does exactly that.
