Singer-songwriter Mason Jennings released his ninth album, the introspective and deeply personal Minnesota, on September 13th. Cheerful strings and light and playful piano melodies fill his latest track, the love song "Raindrops on the Kitchen Floor," which Jennings explains to Rolling Stone is "one of those songs that kind of wrote itself, I felt the only thing it needed was a secret weapon in the chorus. So I asked my friend, Jason Schwartzman from Coconut Records to help me out." Mason Jennings' album Minnesota was released on September 13th, but you can download "Raindrops on the Kitchen Floor" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
