Alanis Morissette returns in a happy mood on her latest single to lead this week's list of top new pop songs.
It has been nearly four years since Alanis Morissette's most recent album Flavors Of Entanglement. Since that time she has married and had a baby. Now she returns with an upbeat song that is still filled with her inimitable lyrical style. The full-length album Havoc and Bright Lights is expected August 28, 2012.
Close your eyes when you listen to Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Mattson, aka The Tallest Man On Earth, and you may be convinced you are listening to Bob Dylan. His most recent album The Wild Hunt broke into the UK album chart and was listed by Pitchfork Media as one of the top 50 albums of 2010. "1904" will be included on the upcoming album There's No Leaving Now.
Singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin is a winner of three Grammy Awards including 1998 Record and Song of the Year for her top 10 pop hit "Sunny Came Home." She has been nominated seven more times. The album All Fall Down will be released June 5, 2012 and is her first studio album in six years. The single "All Fall Down" is classic Shawn Colvin.
Back in December Matisyahu shocked fans when he shaved off his beard and announced new directions in his life. This new single version of his upbeat song "Sunshine" will be included on the album Spark Seeker expected in stores July 17, 2012.

He reached his commercial peak thus far as part of a duo with Chante Moore. Their 2003 album Things That Lovers Do reached #3 on the R&b album chart. "Find a Way" is his first single on his own label SincereSoul and will be included on the upcoming album Back 2 Cool.
