This week: Christina Perri, the 24-year-old cafe manager whose break-up anthem “Jar of Hearts” became a download sensation last summer and led to a recording contract. Her debut album, lovestrong, drops May 10 on Atlantic Records — and her summer tour kicks off in Las Vegas, July 16.
FAVORITE SONG: “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron and Wine. This song has been my favorite for over two years now. The lyrics don’t make much sense, so it just makes you swim in the melody and feel the song. It’s what all songs should do… It melts me into a puddle every time I hear it.
