Brooklyn indie-rock trio Hospitality earned buzz-band status with their peppy 2012 debut, but they navigate darker, more turbulent waters on their follow-up album, Trouble. Fans can get a taste of the album with an exclusive stream of "I Miss Your Bones," a sprawling epic that finds singer Amber Papini mourning everlasting loss with such sad lines as, "All the stars will twinkle in the mist of the sea/ Black and lonely." Behind her, the band builds from a sparse power-pop stomp to a noisy, psychedelic freak-out.

Hospitality Chat About Touring With Wild Flag

"This song was recorded live in the studio with minimal overdubs to capture the unpredictable energy we get when we play as a trio," bassist Brian Betancourt tells Rolling Stone.

That stripped-down, live-in-the-room ambiance fits the themes of the album, too. In a press release, Papini talked about the album's heady lyrics, which focus on "everyday environments that arouse anxiety or unease."

"The ocean isn’t meant for people," she explained. "We aren’t supposed to be there, and some of the animals that live there are much bigger and faster than we are in the water. I think a lot of the songs deal with this out-of-place kind of theme, feelings of unease and the questions of what is under you or what surrounds you.”

Trouble will be released in the US on January 28th on Merge Records, and will be available in Europe on February 4th on Fire Records. It's currently available for pre-order.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
