Dan Wilson Unveils New Track 'A Song Can Be About Anything' [Listen]

Semisonic Eyeing Reunion


Semisonic Dan Wilson

Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson is considering reuniting with his former bandmates for a new album after 12 years.

Dixie Chicks Still Fighting Bush On New Album

Country trio the Dixie Chicks are planning to re-ignite their feud with US President George W Bush in a provocative new song. The group sparked controversy when singer Natalie Maines publicly criticised Bush during a concert in London in 2003 - and fans staged bonfires, where they burned CDs and merchandise after calling the girls traitors. That led to Maines sobbing during an apologetic interview on US TV. But the feisty singer remains defiant and has penned new tune NOT READY TO MAKE NICE, which addresses the controversy surrounding her concert comments. Maines teamed up with former Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson to write the song, which begins, "Forgive, sounds good/Forget, I'm not sure I could/They say time heals everything/But I'm still waiting." The provocative track will appear on the Dixie Chicks' upcoming album TAKING THE LONG WAY HOME, which was produced by Rick Rubin and features guest appearances from Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Mike Campbell. The album also features the song I HOPE, which the Dixie Chicks wrote with blues star KEB' MO' as a tribute to the victims of Hurricane Katrina last year (05).
