Atlanta-based Manchester Orchestra is hitting the road in support of their third album, Simple Math, which was released earlier this year. The White Sea remix of title track "Simple Math" is dreamy and atmospheric, and addresses the growth the band experienced when recording their latest album. Frontman Andy Hull explains that the track is "about the questions that come with starting the voyage of trying to find some truth. Part of that continued life voyage is about making and performing music that honestly reflects how we are growing." Simple Math is out now, and you can stream the White Sea remix of "Simple Math" here.

“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.
