Bruce Springsteen has intentions to get back to his “day job”, with a new brand new record and an E Street Band tour on the cards. Speaking to the Sunday Times, Springsteen, admitted he has a new record on the way. The Boss explained that, “for lack of a better word, it’s a singer-songwriter album — more of a solo record.”
In the interview, The Boss dismissed the idea that he’ll ever run for office, adding that while he has the money and connections to make a political bid a reality, “At the end of the day, you’re just a musician with a loud mouth.”
The unnamed offering will be his first studio record release since 2014’s High Hopes. Springsteen explained that the album is the culmination of material he was working on back in 2012.
“Really, that record is influenced by Southern California pop music of the ‘70s. Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach – those kinds of records.”
Meanwhile, the Sunday Times observed that a tour should be underway in the next few months, and will include dates this side of the Atlantic. Some E Street Band members, however, are not so sure.
Nils Lofgren, guitarist with the E Street Band tweeted, “Only the Boss knows,” and fellow guitarist Steven Van Zandt chipped in, “We say the same things over and over and over and people choose not to listen. Once again there are no plans for E Street Touring in 2019 right now. Could that change at any moment? Yes. We will try and get an official statement. Maybe that would help. Maybe not! @nilslofgren.”
