Bruce Springsteen's seventeenth studio record should be out near march and the title will probably be "Wrecking ball".
The album, produced by Ron Aniello (who also worked on Patti Scialfa's latest effort), will be introduced by a single called “We take care of our own” - set to be out during the current month. The latest rumours talk about this album as the hardest and most angry the Boss ever released.
"Wrecking ball" is also the title of a song Springsteen unveiled during a string of gigs in New Jersey, in 2009 (read the lyrics here). It was released, later, as a maxi single.
Other songs to be featured in the new album are “Jack of all trades”, “Easy money”, “We are alive”, “You’ve got it”. There will also be a version of "Land of hopes and dreams” (a song that appeared in live sets and was put in the live album "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live in New York City"): the song will be graced by a sax solo by the late Clarence Clemons.
Springsteen, last night, was in New Jersey for the benefit event “Light of the day”, a fund raiser to help reasearch against Parkinson's disease. He closed the evening at the Paramount Theatre playing with Joe Gruschecky and the Houserockers, with Max Weinberg as special guest for a couple of songs.
On Friday, The Boss was in the area for the shooting of a video and he was spotted by fans and media hanging with his friend Willie Nile.
