“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.
