New Bruce Springsteen Album Released + More Tour Dates Announced

I know this is sort of like yesterday’s press release today, but I just felt that I couldn’t not acknowledge The Boss’ latest effort which came out on Tuesday (January 28).

Working On A Dream is streaming over here as part of NPR’s “First Listen” Series and also over at Spinner.com.

“Working on a Dream” is Bruce Springsteen’s twenty-fourth album and was recorded and mixed at Southern Tracks in Atlanta, GA with additional recording in New York City, Los Angeles, and New Jersey.

The Deluxe Package of ‘Working on a Dream’ features a DVD showing fans the first-ever look behind the scenes at the making of a Springsteen album; nothing in the film is staged. Produced, directed, and edited by longtime Springsteen associate and Emmy and GRAMMY winner Thom Zimny, the documentary film includes in-studio footage edited to the tracks of “My Lucky Day,” “Queen of the Supermarket,” “Kingdom of Days,” “Working on a Dream,” “Life Itself,” and “The Last Carnival.” Fans may also revel in never-before-heard demos and early versions of various songs as they see Springsteen and the E Street Band at work from a fly-on-the-wall point of view.

In other news, there has been a little talk over on Backstreets.com about the similarity of the Springsteen’s “Outlaw Pete” to Kiss’ “I Was Made For Loving You”. Though the songs are certainly different stylistically and lyrically, Kiss was the first thing that popped into my mind, and apparently I wasn’t the only one who had those thoughts.

All currently announced Bruce Springsteen tour dates after the jump. You’ll notice New York and New Jersey are conspicuously absent from the list below, but surely multiple dates at MSG, Prudential Center, and Nassau Coliseum will be forthcoming.
