The Times They Are A Changin', Twyla Tharp's musical built around the music of Bob Dylan, is going to Broadway on October 26th after playing to mixed reviews in San Diego earlier this year. "Twyla's artistry knocks me out," said Dylan in a statement. "Her production is the best presentation of my songs I have ever seen or heard on any stage." In related news, Dylan announced a late-summer tour of minor-league ballparks in advance of his new album (Modern Times, out on August 29th) with Jimmy Vaughan. It kicks off August 12th in Comstock Park, Michigan.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
