Ronnie Wood has recruited stars like Slash, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bobby Womack and Kris Kristofferson for his new solo album I Feel Like Playing, due September 28th. The disc, Wood's first since since 2001's Not For Beginners, will also feature appearances by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Wood's Faces band mate Ian McLagan. "Lucky Man" will be the single, but you can hear "Thing About You" on Wood's web site now.

The Rolling Stones guitarist has been busy. Earlier this month he played a handful of reunion concerts with Faces including a gig at London's British Music Experience  with Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall filling in for Rod Stewart. And one week before I Feel Like Playing's release, an exhibit of Wood's art works will open at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. (A painting by Wood provided the cover and name for the new album.)

See paintings by Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and more.

“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."
