Pearl Jam's first and best-selling album, 1991's Ten, is being rereleased on March 24th with extensive bonus material, including six unreleased songs. The centerpiece of the set is a complete remix and remaster of the original album by producer Brendan O'Brien, who didn't work on Ten, but oversaw four of the band's Nineties records. A deluxe edition of the reissue will include a DVD of the group's 1992 MTV Unplugged performance, an LP of a Seattle show from the same year and a cassette replica of Eddie Vedder's original audition tape for Pearl Jam. The long-fabled tape – featuring Vedder singing early versions of "Alive" and "Once" – was recently found in the private collection of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament. More rereleases are planned over the next two years, leading up to the band's 20th anniversary in 2011.

“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."
