The Game's The R.E.D. Album has been delayed many times over, so it seems like a miracle that it's finally set to hit stores on August 23rd. The Los Angeles rapper will herald the release of the long-awaited record by performing on this evening's episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Given that The R.E.D. Album is overflowing with guest stars, it's pretty likely that he won't hit the stage alone, so don't be too surprised if Lil Wayne turns up for their new single "Red Nation."


Trace Adkins - Piers Morgan, CNN 9:00 p.m.

Keb Mo - Conan, TBS 11:00 p.m.

The Game - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 p.m.

OK Go - Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, CBS 12:35 a.m.

“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."
