It's been two years since Australian indie rocker Ben Lee released his last LP, 2009's The Rebirth of Venus, but Rolling Stone has an exclusive preview  from Lee's forthcoming Deeper Into Dream, due out October 11th. Although upbeat and catchy, "Get Used To It" addresses a much heavier topic: death.  "Once you jump in, once you jump in, I hope you really get used to it," Lee sings. And while his haunting vocals and honest lyrics evoke sadness, you can't help but feel a bit of peace in the resolution. You can download "Get Used To It" for free here. Come on, jump in.

“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."
