Beautiful Summer ’14

We know you’ve secretly been waiting for it. Beautiful Freaks’ yearly summer playlist. Beautiful Summer ’14 is finally there. It’s the fourth one already and just as enjoyable as the first three. It’s a compilation of twenty pop songs that will lift you up. A compilation that won’t let you down (even if the weather does). It’s your soundtrack for the summer. It’s your soundtrack for the city and your soundtrack for the sea. Be sure to upload it to your iPod! To make the Spotify playlist available offline! We want you to know every single track by heart, somewhere in September. There’s a download link in the sidebar!
