Destiny's Child will release their first new song in eight years as part of a new compilation of their most romantic tracks, aptly titled, Love Songs. The new track, "Nuclear," was produced by Pharrell Williams, who co-wrote the song with Michelle Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal. Beyoncé and Bereal also contributed vocal production.

Love Songs is scheduled for release on January 29th, and along with "Nuclear," will feature Destiny's Child hits and favorites including "Brown Eyes," "Now That She's Gone," "Cater 2 U" and Timbaland's remix of their classic "Say My Name." After a fruitful, hit-filled career, Destiny's Child split up in 2005, with members Beyoncé, Wiliams and Kelly Rowland all moving on to solo careers in music and, sometimes, acting.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
