Ever wonder what “California Gurl” Katy Perry plays on her iPod during workouts? Here’s a hint. Ms. Perry took time out from finishing and promoting her new upcoming album, “Teenage Dream,” (out August 24 in the US and August 30th in the rest of the world) and donned her headphones to create a playlist of high-energy tracks for summer workouts in conjunction with Equinox Fitness Clubs in the US. Katy hand-picked and sequenced the tracks from some of her favorite artists, including from fellow icons (Beyonce, Rihanna and Kylie Minogue), breakthrough artists (Sia, Kelis, The Gossip, Mike Posner) and emerging acts (Crookers and Dragonette).
Katy’s playlist is currently available here.
In a first, a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of downloads from Katy’s mix on iTunes will go to Equinox’s charity, Cycle For Survival,” an indoor cycling event that raises money
for research of rare cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Katy’s Equinox playlist joins those from other artists including Madonna, Jason Mraz, LaRoux, One Republic, Slash and Cyndi Lauper.
