In Roman Coppola's latest film, A Glimpse Inside The Mind of Charles Swan III, Charlie Sheen plays the titular graphic designer who gets dumped by his girlfriend, Ivana (Kathryn Winnick), then picks up the pieces of his shattered life with help from his friends, Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray) and Izzy (Patricia Arquette).

Now you can get an exclusive first listen at the film's soundtrack – out digitally February 5th and physically March 19th via Night Fever Music – which features an original score by Liam Hayes. Hayes, who makes music under the moniker Plush, composed indelible pop tunes for the film like "White Telescope" and "Brain Doctor" that carry a distinct Sixties vibe and are packed with orchestral accoutrements.

The soundtrack also includes the quick country number "Kirby's Song" performed by Schwartzman, while you can check out Charlie Sheen's vocal chops on the Brazilian classic "Aguas de Marco," which premiered on RollingStone.com and features the actor crooning alongside Winnick.

Charles Swan III is currently available on iTunes and due in theaters on February 8th.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
