Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard’s new series that showcases artists’ very own throwback-themed playlists exclusive to Billboard’s Spotify account. The curated set features the artists’ favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week’s spin comes from Phillip Phillips. The singer-songwriter is gearing up for an upcoming co-headlining tour alongside Gavin DeGraw later this summer, in support of his most recent LP Collateral, released this past January via Interscope Records.
Today, the crooner is looking back with this week’s #TBT Mixtape, featuring AC/DC, Dave Matthews Band, Neil Young and more.
“These few songs by these artists inspired me so much growing up as a guitarist and singer/songwriter,” Phillips says. “You can’t beat the classics. Learning to play these songs meant everything to me growing up and now when I listen back they have a total different meaning for me.”
Give the set a spin and check out a retro snap of the artist below.
