Bruce Springsteen Reveals New Music, Possible Tour, in E Street Future (Video)

Bruce Springsteen has an album of songs written for a new record with the E Street Band ready to go, he revealed Sunday night in Los Angeles at a Netflix talk with director Martin Scorsese.

That’s not all. Although he recently said a 2019 tour is off the table for the band, a future tour behind the new album is in the cards, according to Variety. He did not reveal any more specifics.

“It’s like I’ve spent about seven years without writing anything for the band,” he said. “I couldn’t write anything for the band. And I said, ‘Well, of course you’ll never be able to do that again!’ But it’s a trick that, because of that fact that you can’t explain, cannot be self-consciously duplicated. It has to come to you in inspiration.”

“And then about a month or so ago, I wrote almost an album’s worth of material for the band. And it came out of just… I mean, I know where it came from, but at the same time, it just came out of almost nowhere,” he continued. “And it was good, you know. I had about two weeks of those little daily visitations, and it was so nice.” He laughed out loud at the memory. “It makes you so happy. You go, ‘F—, I’m not f—ed, all right? There’ll be another tour!”

Springsteen’s new solo album, “Western Stars,” comes out June 14. His Netflix special, ‘Springsteen on Broadway,” is being presented for consideration for an Emmy Award nomination.

While in Los Angeles, Springsteen found time to join Steven Van Zandt and The Disciples of Soul for a few tunes–“Tenth Avenue Freeze Out,” “Sun City,” and “I Don’t Want to Go Home.” Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul’s new album, “Summer of Sorcery,” is out now.
