Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd is breaking out on his own with a new project called Sons of the Sea. He's set to release a four-track EP, Compass, on June 25th on Avow Records. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to "Where All the Songs Come From," which finds Boyd getting pensive over swooning guitar arpeggios and a propelling beat of shimmering orchestral pop.

"This is a piece about the moment when you understand that as good or as bad as something seems, it's exactly where you are supposed to be," says Boyd. "If perceived as such, one can have access to a limitless inspiration, a 'place' of sorts that is the wellspring of creativity! Cheesy? Maybe. But fun? Hell yes."

“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."
