Just like last year, I've thrown in a Brucey Bonus for you; My Year in Tracks — 2021

I've discovered a lot of stuff this year, and just like last year, I've put together a playlist on Spotify with 1 track from each album that I've enjoyed. I've been working from home pretty much all year, which is something I struggle with as I really miss the social interactions that come with working from an office. At least this situation has meant I've been able to enjoy a large range of music.

If you decide to listen to this, then I hope you find something you like.

Wherever you are in the world, have a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, prosperous new year.
