The latest from Bridget Kearney, Mark Knopfler, The Gaslight Anthem, Crumbs, Cadet Carter

Bridget Kearney: If You're Driving

With the release of the Comeback Kid album, we're featuring the opening track. All Access calls the LP a collection of "memorable songs that are as likable and infectious as anything she's done" as the bassist and main songwriter for Lake Street Dive. The reviewer says this song is one of several on the LP that "nicely recall the '80s work of artists like Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac."

Mark Knopfler: Two Pairs Of Hands

We're also featuring the opening track of the just-released One Deep River. Rock and Blues Muse says the track "finds (Knopfler) again referencing JJ Cale’s nonchalant rhythmic strum, bubbling with congas and his snakelike guitar slithering through a song about the difficulties of leading a band on stage with thousands watching. It’s classic Knopfler."

The Gaslight Anthem: Ocean Eyes

After recording the History Books EP released last year, Brian Fallon says, "We had an idea ... to record some acoustic versions... Then at the same time, I had been listening to this Billie Eilish song my daughter showed me on the way to school one morning called "Ocean Eyes" and I thought, ‘Hey, that would be a great song for The Gaslight Anthem to cover.'" The result is this track included on the band's new EP, History Books - Short Stories.

Crumbs: You're Just Jealous

This is the title and opening track of the upcoming sophomore album by a four-piece band from Leeds that packs punkish energy, driving beats and bouncy lyrics into tight two-minutes-and-change pop songs. This number is billed as "a plea for understanding - and an invitation to dance!"

Cadet Carter: Strangers

Here's another catchy track from the new album, Self-Maintenance, by this Munich-based band fronted by Welsh singer Nick Sauter. This song is a fresh take on the winding down of a relationship: "Maybe we're falling / Out of love and into place /  Maybe we're just strangers now."
