MisterWives Share Playlist of Black Artists Who Paved the Way

To celebrate the release of their latest track “Decide to Be
Happy,” MisterWiveshave
curated a playlist of music by the Black artists who inspired their
love of music in the first place.

The collection of 20 songs runs the gamut of modern music
history, from classic throwbacks by pioneering artists like
Sam Cooke
(“A Change Is Gonna Comeâ€), Aretha
Franklin
(“Respectâ€) and Whitney
Houston
(“I Wanna Dance With Somebody [Who Loves Me]) to
urgently of-the-moment releases by Beyoncé (“Black
Paradeâ€), Childish
Gambino
(“This Is Americaâ€), Lizzo (“Good As
Hellâ€) and more.

“We will continue to fight for equality and lift up and
amplify Black voices that demand justice and liberation. Black
voices have paved the way for our biggest love, which is music,â€
the band tells Billboard. “Without Black music I don’t think
any of us would be inspired by it. We hope you listen loud and
listen proud to the playlist we put together, made up of some of
our absolute favorite Black voices, writers and musicians who
deserve to be celebrated!â€

In addition, the pop band is raising money for Color of Change with their

latest merch design
inspired by the ongoing fight against
racism happening across the country.

“Decide to Be Happy,†meanwhile, serves as the band’s
latest preview off their third studio set, Superbloom, and follows
lead single “Rock Bottom†and the handclap-and-horn-driven
resilience of the title track.

“Superbloom was inspired by the resilience of the vast and
vibrant poppies that aren’t supposed to grow in the desert
terrain – which felt very much like an accurate representation of
my personal journey,†adds frontwoman Mandy Lee of the
inspiration behind the forthcoming LP. “Growing through an
incredibly difficult break down to break through is the message
Superbloom carries and I hope it provides comfort to all those who
are fighting to make it to the other side.â€

Superbloom is slated to arrive July 24 via Fueled by
Ramen/Elektra Records. Check out MisterWives’ “No Music Without
Black Music†playlist, as well as their new song, below.
