With such a devoted following, it only makes sense that the Dave Matthews Band would seek to get fans involved in making their next video. The group is asking fans to submit pictures and film that will eventually be edited into a music video for "Mercy."

In addition to the video, one fan will win a trip to Mountainview, California, to attend the last show on the group's summer tour September 9th at the Shoreline Ampitheatre. "Mercy" is on the band's upcoming album Away From The World, set for release September 11th. To contribute photography or video to the project, or to enter for a chance at the trip, visit Dave Matthews Band's website.

“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."
