Burberry’s long-standing relationship with music is being commemorated with a curated playlist dedicated to some of the most memorable moments of the brand’s past 17 years with Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer, Christopher Bailey. Since taking on the position in 2001, Bailey has made music a key part of the brand experience, incorporating it into retail stores and runway shows, as well as global events and campaigns.

The playlist, which is available on Apple Music, is titled "17 Years of Soundtracks" and allows listeners to enjoy the Burberry experience any time, any place. Bailey states that the playlist “is the perfect way to celebrate the incredible roster of musicians that have helped shape my time at Burberry, be it directly through exclusive recordings, or through lending their songs as the backdrop to our experiences. This patchwork of tracks is a musical tribute to Burberry's past, present and future, which I hope will not only introduce new music to audiences but also allow for some musical rediscovery.”

Some of the artists that make the roster of past Burberry show performers include Alison Moyet, James Bay, Benjamin Clementine, George Ezra, Clare Maguire, Tom Odell, and Paloma Faith. Tom Odell said of Bailey’s support of up and coming musicians: “the team at Burberry were some of the first people to support me and my music right at the beginning of my career.” George Ezra also stated that “having the support of Burberry has been amazing because it puts you into a different world. It’s not just music, it's a real combination of creativity. You’re a component of something bigger and it’s a lovely feeling to know you are a part of something like that.”
