Daily Download: "Road to Peace," Tom Waits

Tom Waits weighs in on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Published October 24, 2006 7:01AM (EDT)

Pitchfork has posted an exclusive download of "Road to Peace," a seven-minute-plus song about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the "Brawlers" disc of Tom Waits' upcoming three-disc set, "Orphans." It's almost a relief to find that even Waits, whose elegance and skill as a songwriter have been so consistent over the years that it's easy to forget after a while just how good he really is, sounds clumsy when tackling a topical political song.
