Stone Temple Pilots have postponed the remaining dates of their summer tour so that frontman Scott Weiland can be placed on immediate vocal rest. According to the band's Facebook page, the singer was ordered by his physician to rest upon discovering that his left vocal chord has scarring and his right vocal chord is tremendously inflamed. Weiland would run the risk of a vocal hemorrhage or permanent vocal damage if he were to continue on with the band's tour itinerary.

The band's concert in Concho, Oklahoma has already been rescheduled for November 5th. The other three canceled shows will be rescheduled soon, though refunds will be available.

“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."
