Turntablist Cut Chemist recorded "Outro (Revisited)" as an ode to his tough times after being released from jail. "I had a strong urge to run so I made a song that made me feel like I was being chased," he says. The song runs, all right – and at a rapid pace. Mars Volta's Deantoni Parks and Weapon of Choice's Lonnie Marshall infuse it with a rocking backbone, and L.A.-based rapper Blackbird also appears.

"Outro (Revisited)" is the first single from the new album Die Cut (A Stable Sound), which drops today. "I haven't put a band of artists on one record like this since Jurassic 5," Cut Chemist says. "It feels good to work with different people with different musical backgrounds to explore new musical boundaries."

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
