Springsteen said it himself, “It’s a jewel box of a record.” He said, “This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements.” He also said that the record was inspired by Southern California pop music of the 70’s.
Watch Springsteen’s new official video for his song “Western Stars” from the long-awaited album below:
Springsteen’s new album Western Stars contains 13 amazing tracks, and is also first of original work since his smash-hit Wrecking Ball in 2012. Bruce said in an interview, “Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, those kinds of records. I don’t know if people will hear those influences, but that was what I had in my mind. It gave me something to hook an album around; it gave me some inspiration to write.”
