Bruce Springsteen Plans Busy Month of March
Rock icon Bruce Springsteen will drop his 17th studio album, Wrecking Ball, on March 6. The first single, We Take Care of Our Own, is an anthemic track relating to events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
The rest of the album is classic Springsteen. His manager, Jon Landau, remarked on Springsteen’s website: “Bruce has dug down as deep as he can to come up with this vision of modern life. The lyrics tell a story you can’t hear anywhere else and the music is his most innovative in recent years.”
Along with the new disc, March will also see Springsteen deliver the keynote address for this year’s South by Southwest conference and festival in Austin, Texas, and the kickoff of his worldwide tour.
Wrecking Ballwill also be available in a special edition with bonus tracks, exclusive artwork, and photography.
