It's Presidents Day, so naturally Bruce Springsteen, the President of Rock 'n' Roll (work with us here; it's a holiday) has released a new track from his upcoming Wrecking Ball album. But even better news: The Boss, via Consequence of Sound, is dropping a new song every weekday from now until Friday, March 2.

Today, we've got "Easy Money," an Irish folk ditty that, we assume, will be what Dubliners now blast at 3 a.m. The track incorporates gospel elements—a booming choir anchors the song—with lines like, "Put on your red dress for me, now, honey/We're going on the town now, looking for easy money."

Wrecking Ball comes out March 6, but NJ.com, presumably Springsteen's go-to news site each morning, has the full schedule for those of you who just can't wait.

Tues., Feb. 21: "Shackled and Drawn"
Wed., Feb 22: "Jack of All Trades"
Thurs., Feb. 23: "Death to My Hometown"
Fri., Feb. 24: "This Depression"
Mon., Feb. 27: "Wrecking Ball"
Tues., Feb. 28: "You've Got It"
Wed., Feb. 29: "Rocky Ground"
Thurs., March 1: "Land of Hope and Dreams"
Fri., March 2: "We Are Alive"
