She’s back. Selena Quintanilla-Perez will release new music in 2012. (In case you don’t remember, she’s dead. (R.I.P.))

“I own five pre-EMI masters of Selena,” [Selena’s father] said. “As we’re speaking, we selected 10 songs and we’re taking the vocals out of the original recordings and A.B. [Quintanilla III, Selena’s brother and former bandmember] is doing new music, bringing it up to date. We already finished one, and it sounds as if Selena had recorded it this morning.”
The vocal tracks were recorded when Selena was 14, 15, and 16, and the “new” album should be released later this year or in early 2012.

Joel and Ethan Coen, Blood Simple

One of my favorite openings. (No Country For Old Men begins almost identically.)
