Last year, Dhani Harrison focused his attention on his supergroup Fistful of Mercy – which also featured Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur. With that project on break, Harrison has returned to his band thenewno2. The group's new EP EP002 is coming out on September 27th, but you can get an exclusive download of the track "Live A Lie" here, which features a guest appearance by Regina Spektor. RZA also guests on another song on the EP. "Regina is a good pal," says Harrison. "RZA too. We have had  loads of time hanging out talking about stuff. We just finally got around to [recording together.] I deeply enjoy playing with both of them."

Thenewno2 plan to release their second album sometime next year. "It's nearly done," says Harrison. "We stopped to finish the EP, but we are pretty much there. It's looking like a record."

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
