New Bruce Springsteen documentary 'Western Stars' on the way

Bruce Springsteen shares ‘Hello Sunshine’ from his upcoming new album

We reported yesterday that The Boss was back with his first new album in 5 years and now there’s a new track. Listen to Bruce Springsteen’s newest single ‘Hello Sunshine’ below.

The song is a lilting tip of the hat to a country road so often traveled by Springsteen. Always touted as a true American storyteller, this new song is another chapter in the book of Bruce.

In a press release Springsteen says of the album, “This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements, it’s a jewel box of a record.”

Springsteen also revealed that he co-produced the album with Ron Aniello, and it features appearances from an array of incredible artists. Those included are Jon Brion (on celeste, Moog, and farfisa), Patti Scialfa, early E Street Band member David Sancious, Charlie Giordano, Soozie Tyrell, and more.

The press release goes on to say the LP is influenced by: “Southern California pop records of the late ’60s and early ’70s” and dives into a “sweeping range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope.”
