This is our biggest and best collection of New Year’s playlists yet with hundreds of empowering and uplifting songs and songs of celebration. We’ve curated them into four separate Spotify playlists so you can fine-tune your theme: Inspiration and Empowerment, Change and New Beginnings, Songs of Celebration, and general New Year’s tracks. Many of these are not just for New Year’s—use them anytime you want an empowering playlist, such as a charity event.
