Australian duo Canyons are set to release their long-awaited album Keep Your Dreams next month. Their debut single "My Rescue" infuses the electronic dance music the group is known for with heavy guitars and live drums. "We actually wrote 'My Rescue' about the feeling you get when inspiration strikes and the power it has to momentarily make all your worries disappear," Canyons' Leo Thomson tells Rolling Stone. "In essence, the song is kind of about itself because the music for it came about when we were feeling a little uninspired and just tinkering with a couple of sounds. The lyrics ended up being about that process."

Canyons' Keep Your Dreams will hit stores on November 15th, but you can download "My Rescue" for free here.

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.
