"Every Single Night," the first single from Fiona Apple's long-delayed fourth album The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, hit the Internet this morning. The song, which has been a staple of Apple's recent performances, has a gorgeous, gently winding melody that moves through a subtly shifting arrangement, sounding like the world's most complex music box. The album will be out on June 19th, but you can stream the song below.

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.
