  • Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars

    Bruce Springsteen has announced a new album. Western Stars is out June 14 via Columbia. The first single, “Hello Sunshine,” will be released at midnight tonight with an accompanying video. Scroll down to see Western Stars’ cover art and tracklist.

    “This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements,” Springsteen says in a press release. “It’s a jewel box of a record.” Springsteen co-produced the album with Ron Aniello. It features appearances from Jon Brion (on celeste, Moog, and farfisa), Patti Scialfa, early E Street Band member David Sancious, Charlie Giordano, Soozie Tyrell, and more.

    According to the press release, the record is inspired by “Southern California pop records of the late ’60s and early ’70s” and explores a “sweeping range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope.”

    Western Stars marks Springsteen’s first studio album since 2014’s High Hopes. Since then, he released a box set for The River, a memoir and a companion album, and vinyl box sets collecting his studio work from 1973 to 1984 and 1987 to 1996. In 2017, he debuted Springsteen on Broadway, an intimate one-man-show that was later released as a Netflix special and album.



    Tracklist:

    01 Hitch Hikin’
    02 The Wayfarer
    03 Tucson Train
    04 Western Stars
    05 Sleepy Joe’s Café
    06 Drive Fast (The Stuntman)
    07 Chasin’ Wild Horses
    08 Sundown
    09 Somewhere North of Nashville
    10 Stones
    11 There Goes My Miracle
    12 Hello Sunshine
    13 Moonlight Motel


    Mods, feel free to move it to the Rock section if it's more appropriate. I figure I would put it here since it sounds more Americana than full-blown rock.

              Happened to notice this thread and checked out those videos - I haven't heard Bruce Springsteen in ages, but his voice is still fantastic. I'll have to check out the rest of the album.

                    In love with the album.

                    This past months have been amazing for me. Mariah, Sarah, Madonna and Bruce... Legends delivering their best and proving why they are real stars.

                      Had a listen to this and I love it.
                      I've not listened to a massive amount of his work. Looks like I'm in for a treat.

                            I'm not impressed at all by this album.
                            I really like Bruce but his strength has in my ears was combining rock with folk and/or Celtic influences. This record is just boring country.

                              A beautiful album, his strongest since Magic for me.

                                "Wrecking Ball" was his XXI century staple for me, that was a stunning record.
                                On "Western Stars" I only love "There Goes My Miracle".

                                      According to Jeremy Levine: “If you only want the bombast of the E Street Band, or even the darkness of Nebraska (1982), it’s not quite here on this record. Western Stars is in its own league; not better or worse than the rest of the catalogue, simply a different approach to the same questions that Springsteen (and his fans) has been asking for almost fifty years: Who are we? What troubles us? Is that our fault? How do we get out? His maturity as an artist and newfound thematic setting gives us a more complicated answer than we’ve gotten before. In 2019, when alienation is the name of the game, this is what we need.”
