First, try reacquainting yourself with Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li, British alt-rockers Morning Parade, the ultimate guitar hero Santana, or the always rock-chic Garbage.

PLAYLIST NOTES

  • Hunter Hayes - Storyline
    The 22-year-old country singer and multi-instrumentalist from Louisiana expands from his one-man-band self-sufficiency and brings in guest musicians for his sophomore album.

  • Lily Allen - Sheezus
    The British pop star with a knack for tongue in cheek grooves and courting controversy comes back all guns blazing, Yeezus style.

  • Tune-Yards - Nikki Nack
    Merrill Garbus’ third album (and second since 2011’s international breakout Whokill) reflects on time spent in Haiti and focuses on simple yet honest and dark messages.

  • Usher - “Good Kisser”
    It’s been two years since the R&B heartthrob (and coach on The Voice) has dropped an album, but he’s teasing his next full-length with this naughty sizzler.
