This Kind of Love, Simon's first album of original songs in eight years, finds the singer experimenting with the percussive sounds of Brazilian music. While she wrote most of the record, Simon honored her children, Sally and Ben Taylor, by recording two songs that they had written ("When We're Together" and "Island," respectively). With gorgeous, sultry melodies and beautiful samba instrumentation, Simon adds new elements to her sound without abandoning what made her famous in the first place.

Singer-songwriter Yael Naim received her big break when her song "New Soul" was featured in a prominent MacBook Air commercial earlier this year. In the process, she became the first Israeli solo artist to enjoy a Top 10 hit in the U.S. Born in Paris and raised in Israel, the multilingual singer crafts a mysterious and delicate sound that features elements of folk and jazz.
