Canadian indie band Zeus will release their second album, Busting Visions, on March 27th. The album's second single is the upbeat, call-and-response-fueled "Anything You Want Dear," which singer Mike O'Brien says was a late addition to Busting Visions.

Random Notes

"The song was spawned from a guitar hook that had been kicking around in my brain for at least a couple of years. I was inspired during the recording sessions for Busting Visions to pull it out and rework it. It's a great representation of the talents of all four Zeusmen," he says. "Lots of harmony singing and call-and-response vocals, dueling guitar licks, a killer bass line that sometimes serves as a lead and some killer drum fills to boot. A later arrival to the record that somehow summed up a lot of what we had been working on."

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
