"Love & Run" (MOTi Remix), the spacious new song from Tiësto, Mark Alston, Baggi Begovic and Jason Taylor, opens with soaring synths and a smashing beat that reform as a driving pulse. Singer Teddy Geiger, known for his 2006 LP Underage Thinking, does well in the EDM space, applying youthful vocals remixed by rising star MOTi. "He's a hot young producer," Tiësto says, "and he’s done a great job adding a new twist. The original was a highlight in my sets all summer long." "Love & Run" is from Dance (RED) Save Lives, Vol. 2 (out November 25), which also features collaborations from Katy Perry and DallasK, Coldplay and Swedish House Mafia and even Bob Marley with Jesse Rose. All proceeds go directly to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa.

Tiësto and 24 More DJs That Rule the World

(RED), founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, partners with artists and brands to benefit the Global AIDS Fund. "With the end of AIDS now within grasp," says (RED) CEO Deborah Dugan, "we have so much to lose if we don’t make a lot of noise. That's exactly what this album is designed to achieve." For World AIDS Day on December 1st, (RED) is hosting a series of dance parties to raise funds and promote awareness for their cause. The party kicks off on November 30th at the Stereosonic Festival in Sydney, Australia; Rolling Stone will livestream the show.

“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."
