The Australian electronic music duo HTRK recorded this eerie, oddly romantic cover of Suicide's "Sweetheart" a few years ago with late band member Sean Stewart, but it's only now coming out as the B-side of a 12-inch single for their own song "Eat Yr Heart." "Sean decided on 'Sweetheart,' he worked out an approach," singer Jonnine Standish told Rolling Stone. "We got together in London, dropped a little 2C-B and did it one take." You can stream the track above, or download it here.

“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.”
