The Biden-Harris team has released a new 46-song Inaugural playlist featuring everyone from Hall & Oates to Kendrick Lamar to Bruce Springsteen .

Curated by The Raedio and D-Nice, the playlist, which dropped on Friday, is the "official playlist for the inauguration of the 46th president and vice-president of the United States", according to @TheRaedio on Twitter.

In a statement, the Biden-Harris team said that the playlist “represents the diversity of our nation, and our strength and resilience as we look forward to new leadership and a new era in America”.

Chief executive of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, Tony Allen, added: “Today we are excited to share President-elect Biden’s and Vice-President-elect Harris’ official inaugural playlist with the nation. These songs and artists reflect the relentless spirit and rich diversity of America. They are the score to a new chapter and will help bring people together as the Biden-Harris Administration begins its important work to unite our country.”

SZA, whose recently released single “Good Days” made an appearance on the playlist, posted an excited reaction to Twitter: “JUST FOUND OUT WE MADE IT TO THE INAUGURATION PLAYLIST."

Other tracks span the decades, with Bob Marley & The Wailers ("Could You Be Loved"), MF Doom ("Coffin Nails"), A Tribe Called Quest ("Award Tour"), Curtis Mayfield ("Move on Up"), Jill Scott ("Golden"), The Impressions ("We're a Winner") and Dua Lipa ("Levitating")
