Radiohead have been back in the studio since late August, and though details on the new disc remain sketchy, the band has been posting updates on radiohead.com. "Jonny [Greenwood]'s stepping over guitar leads and pedals and a laptop as we demo yet another new tune," Thom Yorke wrote about the song "Rubbernecks," which includes the anti-paparazzi lyric, "It's creeping up the car park/It's coming up the drive/Rubbernecks with cameras/Petrol and bonfires."

“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."
