  3. Shania Twain - 'Soldier'

    Country icon Shania is back with a new song, an emotional ballad that sees various soldiers return to their families in the video.

    She wrote on Twitter: “My song ‘Soldier’ is about the heartbreak of having to say goodbye to a loved one. I wanted to make this video to honour the men and women who serve their country everyday. Hope you like it."

  4. Sheryl Crow & St Vincent - 'Wouldn't Want To Be Like You'

    Sheryl Crow is back with a brand new song, and it's a duet with singer-songwriter St Vincent, also known by her real name Annie Clark.

    “I called her and said, ‘I am dying to have you bring your St. Vincent-ness to this," said Sheryl. "And I said, ‘You will not hurt my feelings if you don’t like the song,'. And I sent it to her, and her response was, ‘**** yeah.’ That was a direct quote, as only Annie Clark can respond, which I loved. She did all kinds of stuff on it, and we pretty much used all of it.”

  5. Jason Mraz - 'Might as Well Dance'

    Singer-songwriter Jason will be back with his sixth studio album Know in August.

    Taken from it, is this catchy little ditty, complete with quirky video.
