US coffee shop chain Starbucks has banned the sale of rock star Bruce Springsteen's album over concerns about its adult content.
Springsteen's new album is first to carry a warning
The retailer - which stocks CDs at its branches in the US - said it would be promoting other albums instead.
Devils and Dust, which has topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, is Springsteen's first album to carry an advisory label.
His song Reno describes an explicit encounter with a prostitute.
Ken Lombard, president of Starbucks Entertainment in 4,400 coffee shops across the US, said they agreed the Springsteen album warranted a warning label.
But he added the main decision to bar it was "one of scheduling" and the Seattle-based chain would instead be promoting a new release by female rock band Antigone Rising.
"We have great respect for Bruce Springsteen and for Sony. We're confident that we'll all have the opportunity to work together in the future," said Mr Lombard.
Ray Charles' final album sold well at Starbucks stores
He added that Devils and Dust is being sold in Starbucks' two specialist Hear Music shops, which are based in California.
The coffee conglomerate has played an influential role in US music sales in recent times.
The chain was responsible for a quarter of all sales of the late Ray Charles final album, Genius Loves Company, which sold three million copies across the US.
Springsteen's latest album becomes his second consecutive collection to debut at number one in the sales charts.
