Garbage, currently on an indefinite hiatus, will mine the vaults for a best-of, dubbed 'Absolute Garbage,' this spring. The effort will feature ever-dapper hits like 'I'm Only Happy When It Rains' and 'Stupid Girl,' and will be preceded by a new single.
Meanwhile, frontwoman Shirley Manson has begun work on a solo album, racking up a Who's Who of collaborators. The latest rockers joining the brazen singer are White Stripes/Raconteurs mastermind Jack White and Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan.
Manson previously reached out to Blue Nile's Paul Buchanan in a letter asking him to join her writing efforts. Buchanan will join Manson in the studio next month to continue work on the album, which is also due in 2007.
