It's been 20 years since Joe Walsh's last solo record, 1992's Songs for A Dying Planet, but on June 5th the Eagles and James Gang guitarist will break that silence with the release of Analog Man. Filled with steady rockers like "Hi-Roller Baby" and "Wrecking Ball," not to mention heaps of hot licks (check out the beginning of "India"), Analog Man can be streamed in its entirety here, and you can pre-order the record on iTunes as well.

"I had a really good time doing this album," Walsh told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. "It was great to get my brains out onto a CD. I really think I'm back, and it's not going to be another 25 years until the next one."

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
