Old memories are hard to escape. On their new track "Ever Loved Once," Blitzen Trapper look back on a past relationship and failed starts to figure out if old love ever dies. The alt folk/country crew packs in plenty of airy pedal steel guitar touches, yearning harmonica and rambling banjo plucks as they contemplate small-town romance.

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

"Ever Loved Once" will be on Blitzen Trapper's next album, VII, out October 1st.

“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."
