Christina Aguilera took to Twitter this afternoon for a Q&A with fans, unveiling the cover art and September 14th release date for her next single, "Your Body," and revealing that her next album, entitled Lotus, will drop in November. "Representing an unbreakable flower that survives under the hardest conditions and still thrives," the pop star wrote, explaining her choice of album title. Aguilera also promised a "special clip" of the video for "Your Body" on the September 17th episode of The Voice.

"I'm one that likes to collaborate," Aguilera told Rolling Stone last month on her creative process. "I love feeding off the creative energy, and it only makes me better."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
