Trent Reznor's new Nine Inch Nails lineup lost its bassist earlier this week, but the band just gained another member. Guitarist Robin Finck, a longtime NIN associate, is joining the band's touring lineup effective immediately.

Finck has worked with NIN since 1994 and last played with the band on its 2009 tour. "The addition of Robin to the mix of players I've assembled makes this band incredibly powerful and versatile," Reznor wrote on the band's Tumblr. "We are deep in the rehearsal process and it feels exciting and great to be back at this."

More tour dates are expected to be announced soon.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
