Former Alexisonfire guitarist Dallas Green started releasing music as City and Colour approximately eight years ago, and the acoustic folk project was a stark contrast to Alexisonfire's intense, post-hardcore onslaught. Now he is about to release City and Colour's fourth album, The Hurry and the Harm, on which Green's folk sound expands even more. Here you can get a first listen to the breezy title track, on which laid-back drums prompt slide-guitar swells and Green's easy falsetto.

“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.
