Katy Perry’s been Tweeting a lot about music lately. So, instead of sending fans more YouTube videos of her favorite new bands she decided to make a playlist on Spotify.
Her 12-track Spotify lists includes some more well known acts like Marina and The Diamonds, Passion Pit and Azealia Banks alongside newer bands like Los Angeles-based JJAMZ, which includes Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine, singer-songwriter Jessie Ware and buzzed about electronic acts like Purity Ring and M83.

Katy Perry’s Fall Round Up begins with JJAMZ’s catchy first single “Heartbeat” which has been making the rounds in TV commercials.
Next is the airy vocals of singer Jessie Ware with her song “Wildest Moments.”

It seems Katy isn’t the only one who’s a fan as Jessie’s music video has received over five million views.
M83, Purity Ring and The Weeknd are also featured.
Take a listen to Purity Ring’s “Obedear” below.
Meanwhile, The Weeknd’s “High For This” slows the mood down.
HAIM is another act on Katy’s list who she suggests all discover. With a hint of Michael Jackson the girl group is an intriguing selection.
