Here we go again with "Tracks 2." It appeared that Springsteen was all but ready to release his highly anticipated "Tracks 2" boxset. This of course would be a huge win for his die hard fan base as it was rumored to be a massive collection (upwards of 10 discs) of outtakes and unreleased albums. However, things may have changed which is not unusual in the world of Bruce Springsteen. According to Hal and Flynn from the None But The Brave podcast, Tracks 2 appears to be put on hold and that there may be something new announced from camp Springsteen by The Boss' birthday (September 23). We know that Springtseen has been hard at work in the studio for the better part of a year and he himself stated that he was working on a new E Street record back in 2019. One would only think that the project is now complete and that it may be the new project that is next for Springsteen to release. This would however be a rare thing for Springsteen to do. With the recent exception of his 2019 album Western Stars, Springsteen usually waits to release an album that he plans to tour behind. Of course, given the current touring climate with the COVID-19 virus impacting the entire world, Springsteen would have to wait some time to tour behind the new record if he decided to release it this fall. Some fans believe that Springsteen must feel very strongly about the album that it needs to be released and heard now rather than waiting for the appropriate time to tour. Guess we shall see what The Boss has planned for us in about a month.
