World Cafe Playlist for 07/04/2022

Best of 2022 so far with host Raina Douris

Summer’s just gotten started, and we have officially made it halfway through the year. Coming up, World Cafe is taking stock of the best music of 2022 so far…Like the debut from a new band called The Smile formed by members of Radiohead, Lizzo’s lead single from her next record which comes out next week, and a big comeback from Tears For Fears – their first album in 18 years, The Tipping Point. We’ll hear new music from those bands and more. Join host Raina Douris in celebration of the fourth of July and a look back at the past six months in music.
