Click to listen to Delta Rae's album 'Carry the Fire'

For the past couple of years, North Carolina's Delta Rae has crafted their unique blend of blue-eyed soul and Americana rock from a house in the woods. The result is the six-piece band's debut album, Carry the Fire, which will be released on June 19th. Rich four-part harmonies fill the album, especially evident on lush tracks like "If I Loved You" and "Morning Comes." The anthemic "Bottom of the River" is a ground-rattling fixture of the band's energetic live set, and a lively example of their Southern roots.

Carry the Fire is out on June 19th on Sire, and you can stream it exclusively, in its entirety, here.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
