Bruce Springsteen has announced details of a new album!
‘Western Stars’ is a solo record, and will be out on 14th June. According to Pitchfork, the album’s first single, ‘Hello Sunshine’, will be out at midnight tonight (25th April) and comes with its own video.
“This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements,” Springsteen says in a tweet announcing the album. “It’s a jewel box of a record.”
A press release says the album is inspired by “Southern California pop records of the late ’60s and early ’70s,” exploring a “sweeping range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope.”
