The Rolling Stones' plans for the following year are still up in the air – with rumors of a world tour in 2012 – but Richards is keeping busy. The guitarist has been discussing a record with his band the X-Pensive Winos, which includes drummer Steve Jordan. "It's starting to blossom," said Richards, who has released two albums backed by the Winos, most recently 1992's Main Offender. As for the Stones, Richards added, "I'm trying to nail them down, but I don't want to crucify them."

“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."
