Apple has pushed back the release of iTunes 11 by a month to November, according to The Hollywood Reporter, saying they wanted to "get it right." The company didn't offer more specific reasons for the delay. "The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right," Apple said in a statement. "We look forward to releasing this new version of iTunes with its dramatically simpler and cleaner interface, and seamless integration with iCloud before the end of November." The new iTunes software looks to better integrate Facebook sharing and iCloud synchronization, along with an improved user interface. iTunes' latest quarterly revenue totaled $2.3 billion, up from $1.7 billion a year ago.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
