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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
