Twangy folk songstress and beloved American Idol alum Crystal Bowersox unveiled her highly anticipated track "Stitches" duet with Jakob Dylan, front-man for The Wallflowers and son of rock n' roll legend Bob Dylan. She explained, "Working with Jakob was a thrill for me. I've always admired his work with the Wallflowers, and his solo material as well, so to have him sing on a very personal song that was written for my son was the icing on the proverbial sugar-free, life-affirming, validation cake. I think that parents will definitely be able to relate to the tune, "Stitches". Dylan's performance and personal connection brought the song on to a deeper, heartfelt place." The track made its exclusive premiere via RollingStone.com and can now be streamed via soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/shanachie-1/sets/crystal-bowersox-stitches/s-A6zry
