The Hives have been mostly silent over the past five years, but the Swedish rockers are ready to make their comeback in June with the release of Lex Hives, their fifth studio album. "Go Right Ahead," the first single from the album, finds the band playing to their strengths  bold riffs, blunt hooks, snappy beats – while augmenting their grooves with sassy brass. "Here is our new song," says frontman Howlin' Pelle Almquist. "We have done what we can with it. Now it's your turn."

Lex Hives is due in stores on June 5th, but you can stream "Go Right Ahead" today.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
