Pearl Jam are hoping that a new marketing push pays off big. Anxious to avoid the sluggish sales of 1996's No Code, the notoriously media- and marketing-shy band is cooperating with its label, Epic Records, in an effort to promote the new record, Yield, due in stores Feb. 3. Pearl Jam have even agreed to make a video, their first since "Jeremy" in 1992. Band members have had discussions with director Cameron Rowe (Singles, Jerry Maguire) about working on a clip for the current single, "Given to Fly."

"They felt, if we're going to do it, let's do it right," says a source close to Pearl Jam. (A band spokeswoman would not confirm the project.) The video, which may be extracted from a Crowe-directed short film, should reach MTV early this month.

“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."
