The wait is over: the Strokes have officially released their new single "All the Time," but not through the Seattle station that claimed to have had the track in their hands last month. Instead, BBC Radio host Zane Lowe today premiered the track from the Strokes' forthcoming album, Comedown Machine. "All the Time" glistens and shines with fret bends and springy melodies, and Julian Casablancas' vocals casually drift through a filtered layer of fuzz.

“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."
