Happy Mondays Plan Second Comeback Album

May 21, 2008 2:40 PM ET

After fifteen years of dormancy, the Happy Mondays have already started work on their second album since reforming in 2007. Last year, Shaun Ryder and company released their still-unreleased-in-the-U.S. fifth album Uncle Dysfunktional, and leftover tracks from those sessions will make their way onto the next, still-untitled album, which the band hopes to release in early 2009. Since Dysfunktional dates back to 2005 (legal problems hindered its release), the band is eager to start working on new music again. "It's sounding good," Ryder says of the new material.

“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."
