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."

“Fantasy”

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
