Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson will be releasing her next album, Human Again, on January 24th. The album's upbeat, optimistic track "Blood Brothers" is exclusively streaming on RollingStone.com. Ingrid says that the song became an unintentional anthem of positivity and solidarity.

"'Blood Brothers' is admittedly a 'We Are The World' song. I did not intend to write a song like that, but that's just what came out," she says. "I think I got shoulder checked one too many times in Manhattan."

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
