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."

“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."
