Aimee Mann Collaborating with James Mercer of The Shins
By Jeff Cazanov
At Back Page Magazine, any news about Aimee Mann is worth spreading around. She wants to talk about what she ate for lunch…? Fine. We’ll print photos of it.
Well, there is some news: At her twitter/facebook she’s begun talking about a new album that she’s working on. Apparently recording is almost finished, and on the last day she sung a duet with James Mercer from The Shins…which is a LOT more interesting to us than say… lentil salad in a balsamic vinaigrette.

For those of us who want new Aimee Mann music now, however, there actually is something, and it comes with a little story. Aimee posted this:
“One of the songs was written with @timheidecker and his partner Davin Wood!”
Which drew this response from comedian Todd Barry (you’ll remember him from Flight of the Conchords):
“Yo @aimeemann. Hear you’re recording @timheideckerTried to x-post to aimeemannfans, but they have to approve posts now(?)
song. BIG mistake. I’ll whip up something better & fax it to you
