An allegedly good source with a direct connection to an E Street Band member claimed this last week that Bruce and the band had finished recording an album in Atlanta. The material is said to be all new with no studio versions of previously released songs such as "American Skin" and "Land of Hope and Dreams". The source also said that the band was planning to do a few benefit shows in the spring and then embark on a full scale late summer/early fall tour after the album is released. As usual,....

Not much news is getting out from the ongoing recordings in Atlanta. This week an Atlanta newspaper reported that all rumors of Bruce recording in the city were false. Of course, fans didn't fall for that as Bruce has been seen at the Southern Tracks studio, and later in the week another newspaper confirmed the story. And if that isn't enough, Nils Lofgren himself has now admitted in a radio interview that sessions have been going on, but that it was supposed to be a secret. Well, it ain't a.... Read more
   

New producer joins Bruce in the studio

By Karsten S. Andersen
The rumor we posted the other day about Bruce and the E Street Band recording in an Atlanta studio have turned out to indeed be true. Moreover, it has been disclosed that producer Brendan O'Brien is involved in the sessions, which would be the first time since Darkness Bruce has included an "outsider". Brendan O'Brien has produced Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots, which suggests a more hard rocking sound than what we've been used to. The sessions take place in the Southern Tracks Studios in....

By Karsten S. Andersen
An opera based on Bruce Springsteen's songs? Why not? Pretty soon it will be a reality according to Variety. The two directors, Darrel Larson and Stephanie Kerly Schwartz, have received permission from Bruce to proceed with the plans of turning his music into an opera or musical titled "Drive All Night". No word on when it will premiere to the public, but Bruce himself will be present at a reading of the material sometime in March. Read more on CNN.... Read more
   

Album finished?

By Karsten S. Andersen
Did Bruce Springsteen finish an album with the E Street Band a few weeks before the holidays? That's what we hear from one source whose reliability we cannot vouch for. Of course, it sounds interesting, but with the complete lack of rumors in this regard, we must put it in the "unlikely" category. Perhaps more reliable is the word from the same source of an attempt to get Bruce to do an acoustic show at the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of fame in Cleveland this year. The Hall of Fame has allegedly tried.... Read more
