Dead Can Dance

Last year, Dead Can Dance embarked on a world tour behind Anastasis, their first album in 16 years. The Australian world-music group is still on the road, but before they wrap up this summer, they are releasing In Concert, a collection of live tracks taken from their massive trek.

All eight Anastasis tracks are featured here, along with older cuts like Spiritchaser's "Nierika," Toward the Within's "Rakim" and "Sanvean," which was written during Dead Can Dance's 1993 world tour. Dead Can Dance already create enigmatic music, but the live versions elevate the group's hypnotic cinematics to new heights.

In Concert will be available in the U.S. on April 16th.

“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.
