On this edition of All Songs Considered we've got a bunch of new-year premieres for you, including a special collaboration between Tom Waits and Keith Richards. The two veteran musicians recorded a song together for a new compilation album called Son Of Rogue's Gallery, and we guarantee it's not at all what you'd expect. Do the word's "sea chantey" mean anything to you?

Also on the program: A curious and captivating new song from Ra Ra Riot; the ghostly and gorgeous voice of Lisa Germano; a stunning sophomore release from the Irish band Villagers; the trippy Canadian rock group Elephant Stone; Dutch pop singer-songwriter Blaudzun; the infectious, '60s-inspired psych-pop duo Foxygen and the electronic dance band STRFKR returns with a moodier new record called Miracle Mile.
