Click to listen to Eve's 'Eve (feat. Miss Kitty)'

If you were still wondering, "Who's that girl?" Eve is back to answer your foolish question with a hellacious new song named for herself, from Lip Lock, her first album since 2002. You can now take an exclusive first listen to "Eve," which features Miss Kitty and finds Eve hungrier than ever, unleashing a torrent of lyrical destruction over beat of guttural bass grooves and a twisted, eerie vocal sample that seems to cry out her name. "'Eve' is one of my fave songs on the album," the MC said. "It's in ya face, it's all me. And love the vibe of Ms. Kitty. It's gritty but has a mean bounce." Lip Lock is due out on May 14th.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
