After reuniting three years ago for a series of tours, OMD, the English new wave band who created key synth-pop albums like 1981's Architecture & Morality and 1983's Dazzle Ships, have returned with History of Modern, their first album in 14 years. The disc is also the first Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark album to feature the band's original line-up — Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Martin Cooper and Martin Holmes — since 1986's The Pacific Age. Above, listen to Rolling Stone exclusive stream of OMD's "Pulse," a dance-pop track that recalls the band's Junk Culture era. History of Modern is due out September 28th.

“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."
