It's a mixed bag of the best kind.

1. Jack White + Jack White = Jack White
You already know Jack White, silly. He has a new song, and on June 10th, he'll have a new album. "High Ball Stepper" is featured on Lazaretto. There are no words. Literally.

2. Adele + Jessie Ware = Katy B
Katy B's new single "Still" is the jam that your mom will be bumping in about six months, if she's anything like my mom. A gorgeous breakup ballad delivered in a big, beautiful voice by a very pretty redhead = Mom bait.

3. Jolie Holland + Anais Mitchell = Tiny Ruins
Tiny Ruins is the unbearably pretty work of New Zealand's Hollie Fullbrook, who has just announced the release of her debut album Brightly Painted One on May 13. THIS IS JUST SO PRETTY.

4. Band of Horses + Mumford & Sons = Reuben and the Dark
Hear me out on that super weird comparison and listen to this Canadian band's gorgeous new single "Bow and Arrow."

5. Sleigh Bells + Miley Cyrus + Lesley Gore = Icona Pop
Icona Pop's new song "It's My Party" is not a precise cover of Lesley Gore's hit (something tells me the phrase "what the f**k" wouldn't have had a home on the radio in 1963), but it does feature the same iconic chorus, all fuzzed up. Also, Ty Dolla Sign delivers the classic line "Yous a bitch, you can cry if you want to." Great.
