Perry Farrell thought he'd scored Soundgarden's first-ever reunion gig for Lollapalooza, but the grunge vets will actually take the stage tonight at Seattle's Showbox for a secret show, Billboard reports.

Rihanna's "Rude Boy" continued its strong run on the Hot 100, taking Number One for the fifth straight week, according to Billboard. B.o.B.'s "Nothin' On You" scored second place.

Tool have begun work on their fifth album, TwentyFourBit reports via the band's newsletter to fans, which promises they're working up "intros, progressions, agitatos, con sordinos, crescendos, diatonics, inversions, resolutions, transitions, variations, obbligatos, consonance, and endings."

T.I. has confirmed his new album, titled King Uncaged, will hit stores August 24th. For much more on the Atlanta rapper's return, grab our new issue, on sale now.

“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."
