The Coachella 2013 rumor mill continues to churn out possible headliners for next year's festivities, with Pretty Much Amazing posting a screen-cap of an e-mail from the social concert-calendar site Songkick, which added Daft Punk, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Phoenix to speculation that has already included the Rolling Stones.

Coachella 2012: Rolling Stone's Complete Coverage

Whether the supposed e-mail alert was a total fake, or perhaps just a really bad goof is unclear (though for what its worth, Phoenix do have a new album slated for potential release next spring).

The Stones sparked Coachella talk themselves last week when a show listed for April 12th popped in the tour section of their mobile app. The date was  quickly removed, though not before fans snapped screen grabs.

Back in October, Keith Richards hinted to Rolling Stone that it was possible the Stones' 50th Anniversary celebration would continue into 2013: "My experience with the Rolling Stones is that once the juggernaut starts rolling, it ain't gonna stop. So without sort of saying definitely yes – yeah. We ain't doing all this for four gigs!"

“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."
