The singer's fashion line does not include maternity wear, but she was wearing items from the line at the event. "What I'm wearing today is part of the collection; it's not supposed to be [maternity wear], but it actually is really good for the maternity," she said. "We do have some things that I am still trying to rock!"

“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."
