Steve Van Zandt Premieres New ‘Summer of Sorcery’ Track Ahead of Asbury Park Show (Listen)
Steve Van Zandt is giving fans another taste of the “Summer of Sorcery”–and if you think the new song, “A World of Our Own,” sounds a bit like an homage to The Shirelles, you are correct.
“Growing up, The Shirelles, The Chiffons, The Ronettes, The Crystals and The Shangri-Las were really important to me,” the longtime E Street Band guitarist says of the new tune in a statement to Billboard. “This song is my take on the type of song I might have written for a Girl Group like one of those fantastic acts back in the day.”
Fans who pre-order Summer of Sorcery will receive immediate free downloads of “A World of Our Own” and another track, “Superfly Terraplane,” which premiered last month.
Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul will appear May 8 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park. Ticket are on sale now.
