Set features variety of indie acts.

Teen magazine Seventeen and the Sony BMG's Strategic Marketing Group have merged forces for the first-ever Seventeen-branded compilation. The 12-track collection, "Seventeen - The Best New Music (Hear It First!)," retails for $13.98 and arrives April 18.

Up-and-coming indie acts like the Like, Persephone's Bees, Dirtie Blonde and Shout Out Louds are saddled alongside more established indie artists like Citizen Cope and Tegan and Sara. Brooklyn faves Say Hi to Your Mom's "As Smart as Geek Is Chic Right Now" closes this bouyant compilation.

In-demand producer Billy Mann executive produced the set, which was borne out of Indie Beat, his monthly column in Seventeen. Mann also has helms a weekly blog at seventeen.com.
