The "classic" lineup of Guided by Voices have recorded an album of all-new material to be released on January 1st, 2012. The band, who reunited last year for a run of shows focused on their early Nineties output, quietly recorded Let's Go Eat the Factory sometime earlier this year. It has not been revealed which label will release the set.

This will be the first new material credited to Guided by Voices since the band's supposed final album, Half Smiles of the Decomposed, was released in 2004.

“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."
