"I think I just invited 55,000 people to my birthday party..." On the eve of Springsteen's 63rd birthday, the E Street Band was preparing to wrap up the "summer leg" of the 2012 Wrecking Ball tour in Bruce's home state of New Jersey. After a delayed start due to inclement weather, Springsteen acknowledged that the band would likely go into the next morning by delivering that opening line. The show would not disappoint either.

Bruce Springsteen Interview: E Street Band Will Record In Fall, Tour Next Year

posted May 26, 2019, 6:39 AM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated May 26, 2019, 6:42 AM ]

Bruce Springsteen is not keeping any secrets in regards to his future plans. Bruce was spotted in Rome over the weekend, in town for his daughter's event, when an Italian newspaper (Repubblica) shot The Boss a few questions that perked our interest. Springsteen was asked about his upcoming album, Western Stars. Springsteen stated "I'm very happy about it. We also filmed a documentary which includes the whole recording process, from beginning to end at my house." And there is our first big drop of new information. Springsteen sounds like he will be releasing a documentary around the recording of his 19th studio album. Something that would for sure be welcomed by die hard fans. 

Springsteen was then asked if he would tour around the album and if he planned to come back to Rome. Springsteen responded, "We will go on tour next year. I'll record with the E Street Band in the autumn and when we are done, we'll go on tour. Of course I will come to Rome, I love it." So...there you have it. Springsteen mentioned that he recently written an almost entire album's worth of material for the E Street Band and now he states he has plans to record it this fall and tour behind it next year. Start saving up your pennies, E Street fans!

Classic Springsteen Book Under Consideration For Re-Printing

posted May 18, 2019, 9:31 AM by Brandon Thompson

Many Springsteen fans may be interested in purchasing this book so I figured I would share for those who may be interested. A Springsteen community loved fan book, For You: Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen's Legendary Fans, is considering printing up another batch of books. Please see below a message from the creator and take a quick, one minute survey if you are interested! 



Did you miss out on owning one of the best-loved Bruce Springsteen books of the last ten years? 

For You Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen's Legendary Fans is a limited edition book published in 2007. It has been sold out since 2009. It can be occasionally found on eBay and Amazon on auction for $300+. We are thinking of producing an exact reprint of the original book, including all the amazing stories and rarely seen photos. Two hundred and eight pages jam packed with memories and photos from fans in over 30 countries. We are reaching out to the Bruce Springsteen fan community to see if there is a large enough interest to produce a reprint of the book to allow those fans who missed it the first time another chance. We have not decided on a final price for the book, this will depend mainly on the response we receive to this survey. A fairly close estimate will be $60US plus shipping. Please help share the news on social with other Bruce fans to see if we can make this happen. 


New Bruce Springsteen Single, There Goes My Miracle, Coming Out Tomorrow

posted May 16, 2019, 3:16 AM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated May 16, 2019, 1:52 PM ]

UPDATE: If you just saw this post, you're lucky. The song has leaked online and you can now listen to it by clicking here. The song seems very much influenced by the 60s and 70s take on California pop, as Springsteen originally quoted when the album was released. 

Bruce Springsteen took to twitter this morning to announce that his new single, There Goes My Miracle, will be released tomorrow (May 17). This will be the second release from Springsteen's upcoming album, Western Stars. Springsteen says that his new album is a return to his solo roots that feature character driven songs with sweeping orchestral arrangements. Needless to say, I'm pretty pumped about this new single and release. Be sure to check out The Boss' new single tomorrow!

Bruce Springsteen Has Written An All New E Street Band Album

posted May 6, 2019, 2:46 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated May 6, 2019, 2:53 PM ]

Whoa.

Springsteen has a brand new album, Western Stars, coming out next month but that isn't stopping The Boss from writing. Last night, at a Netflix event, Springsteen confirmed that he recently wrote almost an album's worth of material to record with the E Street Band. Springsteen stated: "It's like I've spent about seven years without writing anything for the band. I couldn't write anything for the band. And I said, 'Well of course...you'll never be able to do that again!' And it's a trick every time you do it, you know?" Springsteen went onto say, "And then about a month ago, I wrote almost an album's worth of material for the band. And it came out of just...I mean, I know where it came from, but at the same time, it came out of almost nowhere." 

Springsteen continued to say that he was excited about the writing and that it was "good." For about two weeks, Springsteen would gain inspiration and just start writing his new material. This is believed to be Springsteen's first new writing since around 2012 as he mentioned in a 2017 interview that he wasn't currently writing. 

In addition to what seems to be already exciting news, Springsteen also said that the band will be back out on the road, (presumably) touring behind the new E Street Band record. The only question remains, when do we see the new E Street record? There have been rumors floating around that a box set may be due out later this year around Christmas. Now one has to wonder if Bruce is changing plans...

Bruce Springsteen Uploads Pro-Shot New Orleans 2006 Videos

posted May 4, 2019, 7:32 AM by Brandon Thompson

Last week, Bruce Springsteen made a surprise appearance at the Asbury Park Music and Film festival during a Springsteen specific portion where never before seen footage was shown. Springsteen talked about how his 2006 show in New Orleans was one of the highlights of his touring career and that there was footage that would be released in the future. The future is apparently here today. 

This morning, Springsteen's camp started to upload professionally shot footage from the historic concert. Interesting to note that this very well may be the new way of sharing live footage of Springsteen's career. There is no word if this will eventually become an official release on Blu-Ray/DVD. Springsteen has uploaded, over the past year,  other official releases on his YouTube page. Videos are linked below, enjoy!

Bruce Springsteen To Release New Album, Western Stars, June 14

posted Apr 25, 2019, 3:02 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Apr 25, 2019, 4:03 PM ]

The rumors were true! The pictures that have been teased all week have led Bruce Springsteen to announce his 19th studio album earlier today, Western Stars. This will be the first new album from Springsteen in 5 years and is a different take from The Boss. This album was rumored to have been worked on for the past few years and was at one point going to be released in 2016 until, of course, Springsteen decided to do The River Tour with the E Street Band. Western Stars will feature 13 new arrangements with over twenty musicians contributing to the final product. 

Springsteen says that the album was inspired by Southern California pop of the late 60's and early 70's. Springsteen states that the new album is a "return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements. It's a jewel box of a record." 

Springsteen will release the first single, "Hello Sunshine," at midnight eastern tonight and it will also be accompanied by a video. E Street Radio on Sirius XM has already been playing the song today. You should be able to pre-order the album at midnight eastern time. There is no word if Bruce Springsteen will tour behind this release.
