Bruce Springsteen will tour a brand new album with his E Street Band next year, the singer has confirmed.
Springsteen, who is just about to release solo material, teased the return of his E Street Band while appearing in conversation with Martin Scorsese, saying: “About a month or so ago, I wrote almost an album’s worth of material for the band,” he said during the talk to promote Netflix’s Springsteen on Broadway.
“There’ll be another tour!” he added.
Now, in a new interview with Italian publication Repubblica, Springsteen has confirmed the tour and new album which will arrive in 2020, saying: “I’ll record with the E Street Band in the autumn, and when we are done, we’ll go on tour [next year].”
With his new solo material in mind, The Boss previously explained the inspiration around the production stating that an invitation from Obama to perform at the White House during the last few weeks of the former presidents time in office.
He was inspired to write a union of spoken-word memoirs and songs that would eventually turn in to Springsteen on Broadway.
After “seven years” of writers block, Springsteen says he found inspiration and “a month or so ago, I wrote almost an album’s worth of material for the band…I mean, I know where it came from, but at the same time, it just came out of almost nowhere. I had almost two weeks of those daily visitations and it was so nice. It makes you so happy. You go, ‘Fine, I’m not fucked.’ There’ll be another tour.”
