She spends her days—and nights—helping people focus on work and study, so this may not surprise you. But Lofi Girl now plays chess.

The beloved anime character, who has become a global sensation with her unique blend of music and visuals, has created a new set of tunes to play and watch the cerebral game to.

Lofi Girl's' playlist features more than 20 relaxing tracks and is available to enjoy now on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, and every streaming platform. Vinyl copies of the playlist are also available to buy here. It is part of a new partnership between Lofi Girl Records and Chess.com to celebrate the greatest tournament in chess, the Champions Chess Tour Finals 2023.

Enjoy the playlist here:

Eight of the world's top players, led by world number-one GM Magnus Carlsen and the hugely popular American streamer GM Hikaru Nakamura, will go head-to-head in Chess.com's end-of-season event in Toronto later this month.

It is the premier season-long event in chess. With $500,000 and the title of 2023 Tour Champion on the line, the Tour Finals will be stressful both for players and fans. So why not settle down to listen with Lofi Girl?
