September 24, 1997 12:00 AM ET

An EP of remixes of the Brian Eno/David Bowie collaboration I'm Afraid Of Americans will be released Oct. 14 by Virgin. Five of the retoolings of the song, which appears in its original from on Bowie's Earthling album, are by Nine Inch Nails; the sixth take is by drum 'n' bass minimalist Rupert "Photek" Parkes. Trent Reznor lends background vocals to one of Nine Inch Nails' mixes, while rapper Ice Cube is featured in another. The Bowie/Nine Inch Nails partnership is presaged by the pair's 1995 North American tour, during which they performed together for four songs at each date.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
