NEW ALBUM: Western Stars - June 14

Recommended Posts

Seriously, I do love the idea of a Bruce album full of strings. I'm a sucker for that.  Check out Van's Avalon Sunset as exhibit A.

OK, just heard Hello Sunshine on ESR, and as I was driving, I said what is this shit. I'll be passing on this one. 

And if he tour's off this album, I'll go if tix's are about $50.00 or less. 

Bring on Born in the USA tour.

So, the new album is actually seven years old.

Crappest album cover EVER. Imagine that little baby on your t shirts and hoodies. It'd be like wearing dinosaur pyjamas.

Crappest album cover this side of WOAD anyhow. 

Personally speaking, and I can't stress enough that this is my opinion only, I couldn't give a big flying furry one if the album cover contains a picture of Bernard Manning's ball sack.

You better get that one right, Bruce. I've never known it to be two words, so I'm already dubious.

I was hoping this was a collaboration between the two of you:wub:

Well, there we go with the first naysayer who has actually heard something! My tastes and JJ's tend not to be too similar, so I am still excited...

I'm excited, but also nervous after reading that Patti's vocals are featured...I hope they are very subtle. Not that quavery stuff over the top of everything.

I have to agree with this.  However, if Patti's work on this is low-key it will be a first for her.  The more I think about it the more I begin to fear for this album, but I hope we're proved wrong.

Then the record would be called Southern Nuts, surely?

Midnight ET, that's, what, 6 a.m. in the UK?

 

I'll be grabbing Zs after the NFL draft then.

From Rolling Stone:

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/bruce-springsteen-western-stars-album-827040/

Western Stars is Springsteen’s first album of new, original songs since 2012’s Wrecking Ball. “[The] record is influenced by Southern California pop music of the Seventies” he told Variety in December. “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.”

Pass, meaning what? Just curious. 

Pass meaning I have no interest in solo Bruce in general and even less after reading the descriptions of the music and themes.  Just not for me.  But I hope those that like him solo really enjoy it.

From USA Today:

The album was teased on Springsteen’s social media account this week with rustic, haunting images from what appeared to be the Joshua Tree National Park in California and other points west.

Springsteen has stated that he will not be touring with the E Street Band in 2019. The “Western Stars” release did not include any info about solo shows, nor did it suggest any were coming.  

“Before I go back to my day job, the year will be consumed with a break after our Broadway run and various recording projects I’ve been working on,” said Springsteen, 69, on social media last December. “We do hope to see you soon, and until then, we have some mighty E Streeters out there regularly performing with their own projects who’d love and deserve your support.”

Upcoming albums from E Street Band members include “Summer of Sorcery” from Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul on May 3; “Blue with Lou” from Nils Lofgren on Friday, April 26; and a new album from Jake Clemons.
