The Police will release a live CD/DVD set documenting their year-plus reunion tour. Drummer Stewart Copeland says two of the band's Buenos Aires concerts in early December were recorded for the album. The double-disc set is expected out later this year. A documentary about the reunion tour, titled Better Than Therapy, will also be included on the DVD, with Copeland's son Jordan the director of the doc. The reformed Police will perform their last concert together August 7th at New York City's Madison Square Garden. That concert will benefit public television stations in New York. As another tie-in, the band will host a number of eBay auctions featuring VIP ticket packages and autographed memorabilia, all benefitting public television.

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."
