In this sneak preview from next week's prom-themed episode of Glee, Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry reunites with Jonathan Groff's Jesse St. James to sing Adele's hit "Rolling in the Deep." The Glee version actually comes a lot closer to John Legend's a cappella arrangement, down to the breakdown and choir interludes.

“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."
