Mexican chanteuse Julieta Venegas is getting a head start on 2010. She’s been busy putting the finishing touches on her upcoming album JV10, set for release in March. So far we know she enlisted Grammy-winner Cachorro López as producer (he also worked on her 2006 disc Limón Y Sal) and collaborated with Alejandro Sergi of the band Miranda and Adrian Dargelos from Babasónics on a few songs.
