There, she has been focusing on writing her sophomore album -- and recovering from a year of touring. "I've spent 2005 basically recovering from 298 shows in 2004, which was really exhausting," she says. "I moved back to Montreal because I wanted to get out of the noise of New York City and into the quiet of myself for this next record -- because I really want to expand. Now I'm diving into a very different period of my life, musically." <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/_/id/8731319/aufdermaur?has-player=unknown&version=0&show-guide=true">Read more.</a> And check out Melissa's weblog at <a href="http://lightningismygirl.blogspot.com">LightningIsMyGirl.blogspot.com</a>.<p style="font-size:10px;text-align:right;">Technorati Tags: <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/Melissa Auf Der Maur" rel="tag">Melissa Auf Der Maur</a>, <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/Smashing Pumpkins" rel="tag">Smashing Pumpkins</a></p><br />
