“Music has influenced me profoundly from a very young age and has always been an emotive companion in my life. This passion has resulted in me having a wide and varying taste in music with a particular love for British artists, both new and old. It is something I go back to constantly as a source of inspiration – from providing the soundscapes to our shows, to live performances at our events, to recording music videos of the newest musicians at the very beginning of their careers.



’17 Years of Soundtracks’ is the perfect way to celebrate the incredible roster of musicians that have helped shape my time at Burberry, be it directly through exclusive recordings, or through lending their songs as the backdrop to our experiences. This patchwork of tracks is a musical tribute to Burberry's past, present and future, which I hope will not only introduce new music to audiences but also allow for some musical rediscovery.”

Christopher Bailey, Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer
