Twenty-Five Songs For Dr. Dre's Planet Playlist

According to Vibe, Dr. Dre is working on an instrumental album about the planets, based on the personality of each. He will be recording it for surround sound because “It’ll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.” To help inspire the “Nothin’ but a G Thang” auteur, we’ve put together a list of each planet’s attributes, and some musical pieces that match them.

Named after the messenger god. Smallest planet. Dry, barren, very little atmosphere.

1. Blonde Redhead: “The Messenger”
2. Elliott Smith: “Little One”
3. Manchester Orchestra: “I Can Barely Breathe”
