San Francisco indie-rock duo the Dodos will release their fifth album, Carrier, on August 27th on Polyvinyl and have just announced a huge, 32-date North American tour for fall. The band sees the record as a return to their roots, a move inspired by the group's uncertain future and the sudden passing of onetime guitarist Chris Reimer (also of Women).

Siren Festival 2008: The Dodos

Now you can take an exclusive first listen to another new album cut, "Substance," which follows up first single "Confidence" and carries all the marks of a fine Dodos track. The off-kilter stomp of Logan Kroeber's drums come washed in cymbal crashes and carry the rushing strum of Meric Long's guitar melodies, while midway through, an upswell of horns provide the perfect accompaniment for Meric's repeated cry of "But you will forget and I will remember!"

“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."
