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.
