Rob Zombie Completes Work on Long-Awaited White Zombie Box Set

September 9, 2008 3:51 PM ET

Rob Zombie has finally finished work on the long-delayed White Zombie box set. The set will house five discs: four dedicated to over four and half hours of music, while the fifth disc will house "tons of never before seen videos," Zombie said in a MySpace post. As for the music, Zombie said "All I can say is boy the early shit is whacked. I haven't heard some of these songs in over twenty years. I don't know what the hell we were thinking." No release date has been announced yet, but Zombie said "it shouldn't be much longer. I'm pretty you'll be getting [it] under your Christmas tree." When we talked to Zombie last December about the box set, he told us not to hold our breath, saying "I'm not real big on going back and repackaging the past." At least we can exhale now.

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."
