Click to listen to Motion City Soundtrack's 'True Romance'

"True Romance," the first single from Motion City Soundtrack's fifth album, Go, starts off as a simple acoustic ditty but, within a few bars, the music shifts into the quintet's strong suit of perky, upbeat rock. "'True Romance' is a love song about two people who seemingly don't have much in common except their love for the time they share in the bedroom," says singer Justin Pierre. "In my experience, opposites do attract. And if you can get over the superficialities, you often find you have more in common than you initially thought. Perhaps you even find love."

Go will be in stores on June 12th, but you can preview "True Romance" here today.

“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."
