This title track from Costello’s new record once again teams the singer/songwriter with legendary producer T-Bone Burnett for a rocking good time. The song’s lyrics rail against the government, Wall Street and other frequent targets of Costello’s angst, amid a backdrop of screaming guitar and general cacophony. The full album, which features the full lineup of backing band the Imposters along with guests like Leon Russell and Marc Ribot, is due for release on November 2.
