Bruce Springsteen's new album - 'Wrecking Ball' - is angriest yet
Bruce Springsteen is just about set to release his 25th album and word has it that it's his "angriest" collection of songs to date. The name alone signals that: Wrecking Ball.
"He gets into economic justice quite a bit," a source who has heard the music told the Hollywood Reporter. "It's very rock 'n' roll. He feels it's the angriest album he's ever made. Bear in mind, though, that [Springsteen] wrote and recorded the majority of the album before the Occupy movements started, so he's not just setting headlines to music."
It's supposedly a collaboration project, featuring the E Street Band, but also Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain, according to New York magazine's Vulture blog. Song titles, according to Vulture, include: Easy Money, Death to My Hometown, Jack of All Trades and American Land.
Pitchfork.com says a UK release is expected on March 5, with a U.S. release on March 6. The first single can be found online. It's called We Take Care of Our Own. Watch the video below.
