Bruce Springsteen is finally preparing to release the solo album he’s kept under wraps for several years.
He noted that while the new material has connections to the rest of his solo work, fans will find that it feels very different. He wrote the songs around the time he created 2012’s Wrecking Ball, but other work distracted him from finishing the album.
“His just been caught up in other projects,”
Good music doesn’t go away
Springsteen said he wrote most of the new record before Wrecking Ball, but that he stopped work on it to make that 2012 album instead. Since then, he’s not written much. “But that’s not unusual,” he said. “That’s occurred plenty of other times in his working life.” Springsteen’s last album was 2014’s High Hopes, which reworked some earlier material.
