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."

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
