Bruce Springsteen released a new single, ‘Letter To You’, and he is about to return with his 20th studio album.
The new album features nine new songs and three recordings of some very old Springsteen material, all date back to the ’70s.
“Song For Orphans,” “If I Was The Priest,” and “Janey Needs A Shooter”. Apparently, Springsteen is reuniting with the E Street Band, but in a different way than usual.
‘Letter To You’ is the album’s title track, and you can feel a bit of that Springsteen’s energy in it. Check it out below.
Springsteen described the recording session as “completely live in the studio”. The idea of a raw E Street album recorded in less than a week is an intriguing prospect.
“I love the emotional nature of ‘Letter To You’, and I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had.”Springsteen said in a statement.
