Back when they were recording their 2005 LP, Waiting for the Sirens' Call, post-punk torchbearers New Order ended up with a handful of extra songs. They will finally see release on January 15th on Rhino. The unused tracks from the sessions were written and recorded before the departure of original bassist Peter Hook and appear completely intact.

Here you can take an exclusive first listen to Lost Sirens, which features no shortage of lovelorn yet wholly danceable cuts, such as opener "I'll Stay With You." "Hellbent" features a scorching guitar that morphs into chiming synths when the chorus drops, and "I've Got a Feeling" rides a supple bass line and steady drum groove to its sunny apex.

“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."
