Bruce Springsteen’s new album, Letter to You, set for October 23

Bruce Springsteen will release Letter to youA new rock album was recorded live with the E Street Band on October 23 at their New Jersey home studio. The title track is also the first single and is now available.

“I love the emotional nature Letter to you, “He said in a statement.” And I absolutely love the sound of the E Street band being in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and no overdubs. We made the album in just five days , And it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had. ”

In addition to nine new songs, the album also includes a fresh recording of three songs dating back to Springsteen’s early 1973 album, Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ.: “Jenny Needs a Shooter,” “If I Was the Most Priest” and “Songs for Orphans.” Springsteen is believed to have kept the lyrics from the early boot versions, “If I Want the Priest” (covered by Hollis singer Alan Clarke in the seventies) is a sacred fantasy (“If Jesus was Sheriff and I was a priest / if My woman was an heir and my maternal uncle was a thief “), while” Lyrics for Orphans “is” a Dylan-esque tale of aimless search-less hypocrites who spend their lives in songs, “and” Janei “. Is a slightly twisted love song.

Springsteen wrote at least Letter to you Last spring, given the comments made last year in a public conversation with Martin Scorsese. “I couldn’t write anything for the band,” he said. “And I said, ‘Well, of course … you’ll never be able to do this again!” And it’s a trick every time you do it, you know? But this is a trick, because due to the fact that you cannot explain, self-consciousness cannot be repetitive. You have to get inspired. And then about a month ago, I wrote almost an album of material for the band. And it came out of the bus… I mean, I know where it came from, but at the same time, it just got out of nowhere. And it was good, you know. I had about two weeks of those short daily trips, and it was great. It makes you very happy. You go, fuck, I’m not shit, all right?

In a recent interview for What is on E Street? Presented by the video series (Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music in Monmouth University), E Street guitarist Nils Lofgren stated that the upcoming album is “a great record … like I’ve ever heard Bruce say, and that’s a lot to say.” Used to be.”
Springsteen released his last album, Orchestra-Pop Western starsIn June of 2019.
