It looks like Coldplay will be taking a break from live shows very soon. According to Billboard, frontman Chris Martin told the crowd at a Brisbane, Australia, show last week, "This is the last big show for three years or so," and added, "I don't want to stop." Early in the night, Martin promised the crowd, "We're going to play for you the best fucking show in our life."

Coldplay has three gigs set for the end of the year, culminating in a New Year's Eve show at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center with Jay-Z.

“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."
