Today, we're introducing you to Mix #44. The first week of the year is our opportunity to turn a new leaf, begin anew, and ultimately, give ourselves a blank slate. With a whole 365 days ahead of us to change the world, there's nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Of course, you don't want to begin your journey to have the best year of your life without listening to Gravyty's soundtrack for starting fresh. These are the songs about beginning journeys that you've always wanted to finish.
One last kicker before you throw your headphones on: the first song on this playlist, Dawn a New Day by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, was written to benefit the New Day Foundation, a nonprofit committed to bringing music education and opportunities to underserved communities and supporting mental health.
We hope this list will motivate you for the next hour to help you do the best work of your life.

Did you miss last week's playlist? Don't worry - we've got you covered! Check out last week's Spotify mix: And In The End. Plenty of songs were written about things ending, so why not compile a bunch into a playlist about the changing of the calendar?
