Turns out the leader of the free world really loves him some Courtney Barnett. You might recall that a few months back President Obama released his summer playlist, which included a cut from our favourite Tele-strumming singer-songwriter from the land of Depreston.
Well, Obama, in addition to being the President of the United States and all that, recently took up a side gig as the editor of Wired. Hey, the economy’s hitting everybody pretty hard. Regardless, Obama decided to share his workout playlist with the tech mag.
Once again, Obama has included Barnett’s ‘Elevator Operator’, alongside tunes by big guns like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Black Eyed Peas, Forro In The Dark, Icona Pop, and Sinnerman. Apparently, Barnett’s tune is “A solid track for the final push on the elliptical.”
It’s not even the second time Barnett’s been in the presidential circle. She previously appeared on the same episode of daytime talk show Ellen as the First Lady. You can check out that performance right over here.
