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."

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.
