Folk artist and American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox will release her second studio album, All That For This, on March 26th on Shanachie Entertainment. Now you can get an exclusive first listen to the album cut "Stitches," a gorgeous, heart-mending ode that finds Bowersox collaborating with Jakob Dylan. "Working with Jakob was a thrill for me," Bowersox tells Rolling Stone. "I've always admired his work with the Wallflowers, and his solo material as well, so to have him sing on a very personal song that was written for my son was the icing on the proverbial sugar-free, life-affirming, validation cake. I think that parents will definitely be able to relate to the tune, 'Stitches.' Dylan's performance and personal connection brought the song on to a deeper, heartfelt place."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
