    "The Boss" is Back!

    As usual, available on Spotify.

    The album includes nine songs recently written by Springsteen, and three new versions of previously unreleased tracks from the 1970s: "Janey Needs a Shooter," "If I Was the Priest" and "Song for Orphans." The collection — produced by Ron Aniello with Springsteen, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig — is The Boss' first time performing with the E Street Band since their 2016 The River tour.

    The title track is classic E Street Band energy, with poignant piano, layers of guitars and Springsteen's weatherbeaten vocals floating above it all as he works out some existential angst about an all-encompassing love. "Dug deep in my soul/ And signed my name true/ And sent it in my letter to you," he sings in the stark black and white video that features images of Bruce writing the lyrics in a notebook, sharing tender moments with wife/bandmate Patti Scialfa and working the track out with his trusty sidekick guitarist "Little" Steven Van Zandt.

    In the 90s and 00s and even the 10s, I kept putting off concerts - too expensive and always thought that there will be another tour when I'm ready to splurge. And then 2020 happened...

    2020 has totally shifted my outlook on 'nah, maybe next time' or 'too expensive'. If you really want to see that artist, pay the money. Get it done. Gutted to basically have seen no live music this year..

    There are a handful of artists and bands that I would in a heartbeat shell out for when tours kick off again (and it's safe etc). And that includes buying a ticket to Tokyo/Singapore/Taipei etc (which I've done before and enjoyed a long-weekend break)!

    I got in a show during his concert residency on Broadway. It is on Netflix now and worth the watch, if you have not seen it yet.

    Hate (maybe too strong) “Letter to you” but love the video and how they recorded it.

    100% echo this - it's such a wonderful experience to hear him sing these songs, woven into the story of his life and career. Really touching renditions of tunes like My Hometown and Tougher Than the Rest
