  • The Head and the Heart have dropped their debut single "Shake" from Let's Be Still (out October 15). The flawless harmonies and punchy percussion give me a bit of a Fleetwood Mac vibe. If this is just the beginning, the new album is sure to be amazing. Tune in to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight when they debut this track live. [CoS]
