As we reported this morning, Bruce Springsteen is on the verge of announcing the details of his 17th studio album, which his manager Jon Landau says has "social overtones" and "a very pronounced spiritual dimension." According to Amazon.com, a new single called "We Take Care Of Our Own" is going to hit the web tomorrow. (The artwork here is what's posted on the site.) There's no 30-second preview, but it does note that the song is 3 minutes and 54 seconds long. The album was produced by Ron Aniello (Candlebox, Barenaked Ladies) and was recorded with a wide variety of musicians, including Tom Morello and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain.

“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.
