Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will release his latest solo effort, Traveler, on October 16th through ATO, but now you can turn in and drop out with this exclusive advance stream. The record opens with the shimmering, love-versus-the-apocalypse ode "Corona" and goes on to find Anastasio incorporating funky, fat horns and whirring synths on "Land of Nod" and Zappa-esque orchestral meanderings that turn pure pop on "Scabbard." Traveler even includes a zonked-out, soul-tinged cover of the Gorillaz track "Clint Eastwood." You can pre-order Traveler on iTunes and stream it above.

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
