In celebration of her sultry, synthy debut album (out August 7),we asked break-out Brit Georgia to curate us a soundtrack of her favourite romantic tracks, perfect for these hot and heavy August nights.

(Also: She’s far too modest, but one of Georgia’s own tracks definitely belongs on here. We’d suggest the funky “Cab Ride”)

  Rose Royce – “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”
