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'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...
