Are you homely, like "Mary," who "never won a pageant"? Or angry, like "Adam," who "grew up mad and anti-social"? K’naan and Nelly Furtado are here to raise your self-esteem: "This is for everyone who felt invisible," the Canadian hip-pop aristocracy beckon. Early front-runner for 2012’s most dispiriting pop pep talk.

    “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."
