Winter begins today in the Northern Hemisphere: shorter days and colder temperatures accompany a holiday season in full swing. For a quiet evening in — whether by oneself or shared with family or friends — take some time to reflect on the past year, share a laugh or take a moment to appreciate successes. In this discussion, throw on some relaxed music from artists across the world to accompany the night. The world’s a big place, and this playlist reminds us that we’re all in it together. From Australia to France, from jazz to Americana with some chillwave in between, these global tracks pair best with a warm blanket, some cold-weather drinks and a crackling wood fire.
