Beyoncé's new single "Run the World (Girls)" is set to be released in the iTunes store tomorrow after a version of the song leaked earlier this week. The track, which includes a sample of Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor," was co-written by The-Dream and Beyoncé, and produced by Switch with help from the singer and Shea Taylor. Diplo, Switch's partner in the Major Lazer project, is not credited on the song. "Run the World (Girls)" will be the first taste of her forthcoming album, which does not yet have a title or release date.

“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."
