Beyoncé's new single "Run the World (Girls)" is set to be released in the iTunes store tomorrow after a version of the song leaked earlier this week. The track, which includes a sample of Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor," was co-written by The-Dream and Beyoncé, and produced by Switch with help from the singer and Shea Taylor. Diplo, Switch's partner in the Major Lazer project, is not credited on the song. "Run the World (Girls)" will be the first taste of her forthcoming album, which does not yet have a title or release date.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
