Free MP3: Billy Bragg, ‘Never Buy the Sun’ — protest song about News of the World scandal

The News of the World scandal currently rocking England has led brash folkie Billy Bragg to pick up his guitar and quickly pen a scathing new tune that he’s now giving away for free: “Never Buy the Sun,” which he labels “an outspoken attack on press, police and politicians.” You can watch a live performance of the song (sample lyrics: “Tabloids make their money betting bullshit baffles brains”) above, or download the just-recorded studio version at Bragg’s site or via the player below.

Stream or download Billy Bragg’s ‘Never Buy the Sun’ after the jump…
