"Shakira contacted him and said, 'I'd be interested to hear what you're working on,' and so he and I got together and made a few tracks and she wound up using three of them," Endicott tells Spinner. The duo managed to churn out 'She Wolf,' "Men on This Town' and 'Loba' for Shakira's new disc, but for those wanting details about the first song's lyrical content, they should ask the Colombian singer herself.
"She wrote all the lyrics to it, and I think she did a great job because they're really kooky and interesting," Endicott says. "They're unusual."
Endicott worked with Hill on the Shakira cuts at the same time 'Stir the Blood' was being recorded and he feels the material has some sisterly ties.
"For me, 'She Wolf' doesn't sound that different musically from a Bravery song. Everything I do for the Bravery is usually based around a bass line," he says. "I'm a bass player at heart. There's a lot of disco bass lines in our stuff and that's the same with 'She Wolf.'"
Endicott will spend much of 2010 on tour with his own group, but he revealed he's already continued his pop writing, penning a cut for another world-renowned blonde pop star with Hill.
"I did a track for the new Christina Aguilera album," Endicott says. "It's called 'Monday Morning.' We made the basis of it and then [producer, DJ] Switch was involved."
And it appears branching out as a mainstream songwriter is something Endicott plans to continue in the future.
"I'm very open-minded about making music," he says. "There are songs that I write that are from my heart and about my life and those become Bravery songs, but beyond that, I just really like making music and working with creative people. It doesn't really matter to me the genre as long as the music is interesting and creative."
