Spring is officially in full swing. The sun is shining, weather is warming up, and festival season is right around the corner. What else could you want?

Well, if you are anything like us at The French Shuffle, you may be thinking about refreshing your music collection as the rays come out and springtime fun kicks in. Fortunately, we already did that for you.

Ranging from Blende, Neon Indian, and Roisto to Midnight To Monaco, Cleopold, and Klyne, we have compiled a list of feel-good tracks, just perfect for one of the most beautiful seasons of the year – spring. Introducing The French Shuffle’s inaugural Springtime Selection:
