A new Bruno Mars song called “Liquor Store Blues” hitting the Internet right after news of the 23-year-old singer’s arrest for cocaine possession in Las Vegas broke? Now that’s just cruel. Have a swig of the reggae-tinged jam, which also features Damian Marley, after the jump.

“I’ll take one shot for my pain, one shot for my sorrow/Get messed up today, I’ll be okay tomorrow,” Mars sings on the chorus of “Liquor Store Blues,” a track from his forthcoming Doo-Wops & Hooligans album (due out October 5).
This, of course, is almost as ironic as Bruno’s response to us in August when we asked him if he had any crazy Vegas stories to share: “Yeah, I don’t wanna talk about that.”
At any rate, while “Liquor Store Blues” isn’t nearly as infectious as Bruno’s current hit “Just The Way You Are” (#3 this week on the Billboard Hot 100), it should still make for a fairly decent album track nestled in amongst what we’re hoping is a tasty plateful of catchy future singles.
