Google recently announced a new playlist to Google Play Music that might be of interest to folks looking to discover new artists this year. The playlist is called “Ones to Watch in 2017” and features music from 10 hand-curated artists. Here’s a look at what’s included:

Lost Kings
Kodie Shane
Bishop Briggs
Allison Crutchfield
Maggie Rogers
Rag’n’Bone Man

I don’t think I’ve heard of any of those artists, which may be dating myself a bit. I’m not down with what the cool kids listen to any more, I guess. They must be pretty well known, though, because Google said they were picked by the Google Play Music editorial team, which considered “everything from track performance on Pop Before It Breaks and Blogged 50 to Google search counts and social media reach, to just pure, inalienable music expert gut instinct.”

Sounds good to me, loading it up on my phone for my upcoming flight right now. Hit the source to read a bit more about each artist.
