Allen covers the song from the Volkswagen commercial for a French cell-phone commercial. Shut up, we still like her. [New Music Now via Idolator]

2. Jay-Z vs. Led Zeppelin, American Zeppelin
For reasons unknown, DJ Doc Rok has replaced the beats on Jay-Z’s new album with Led Zeppelin samples. It’s better than that sounds, though. [Perez Hilton]

3. Lupe Fiasco, The Cool
You can stream Lupe’s semi-disappointing new album in its entirety now on MTV’s semi-functional Website, or wait an hour until the more-convenient, higher-quality MP3s leak all over file-sharing networks. Either way, it’s completely up to you. [MTV]

4. Beach House, “Gila”
Baltimore’s mopiest return, we guess. [Stereogum]

5. The Hold Steady, “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window” (Bob Dylan cover)
Everyone’s favorite drunk Springsteen fans capably tackle one of Dylan’s lesser-known classics, even though climbing out of windows is dangerous — especially if you’ve been partying with the Hold Steady. [Fuel Friends]
