Default New Bruce Springsteen + E-Street-Band Album - Letter To You

https://brucespringsteen.net/

Bruceís new studio album with the E Street Band, Letter To You, will be released on October 23. A rock album fueled by the band's heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound, the 12 track Letter To You is Bruceís 20th studio album, and was recorded at his home studio in New Jersey.

ďI love the emotional nature of Letter To You,Ē says Bruce. ďAnd I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way weíve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences Iíve ever had.Ē

Letter to You includes nine recently written Springsteen songs, as well as new recordings of three of his legendary, but previously unreleased, compositions from the 1970s. Produced by Ron Aniello with Bruce Springsteen, Letter To You is Bruceís first time performing with the E Street Band since The River 2016 tour.

Tracklist:
1. One Minute Youíre Here
2. Letter To You
3. Burniní Train
4. Janey Needs A Shooter
5. Last Man Standing
6. The Power Of Prayer
7. House Of A Thousand Guitars
8. Rainmaker
9. If I Was The Priest
10. Ghosts
11. Song For Orphans
12. Iíll See You In My Dreams

The new song, Letter to You, isn't the best.

Do we really need a new thread every time Bruce farts? Can't we just revive one of the 8 previous ones?

The new song is what it is - Bruce by numbers. It's fine. After a period of acoustic drivel that included the last album and the castration of the old classics for the Broadway show, he now went back to his old bandmates, so we hear the big Max drums, Roy's piano and loud guitars; all that were sorely missed from his albums the past decade (sans High Hopes, but that was mostly a collection of old songs anyway). Sonically, sounds like an E Street song. All there's missing is a good hook and genuine energy. The closest comparison to his past for me would be Lonesome Day meets Better Days meets I Wish I Were Blind. Except all three of these songs are much better.

It reminds me the new single the Rolling Stones put out a few months back (Living In The Ghost Town). Vintage sound, but not that much songwriting substance. I guess the Bon Jovi's best equivalent would be We Weren't Born To Follow.

That's how you save 2020.

A Bruce record, followed by a Bon Jovi record.

This is one of my favorite songs in his entire career.

Joyous, uplifting, all the adjectives.
