Details about David Byrne and producer Brian Eno's collaboration album have emerged, as the duo launched a new site today. The album, entitled Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, will be released in August strictly through the album's official website. As Byrne says in a video on the page, Eno wrote the music and Byrne wrote the lyrics. Everything That Happens will be streamed for free in its entirety upon its release, with physical and digital copies available for purchase. If you sign up for updates at the page, you'll also be sent a free MP3 of one of the songs on August 4th. Additionally, Byrne will go on a tour that prominently features his previous collaborations with Eno, including their three Talking Heads albums together and their 1981 album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Dates for that tour will be announced soon.

“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.
