Amidst his current world tour, Bruce Springsteen has been work on a new studio album, the follow-up to last year’s Wrecking Ball. Springsteen explained to Rolling Stone in a new interview, “I have stuff I’m working on that I’m very happy about,” adding “I hate to say, because I don’t like to be wrong… But I have a lot of material. I still feel like I’m in the middle of the well.”
According to Rolling Stone, Springsteen and the E Street Band (including guitarist Tom Morello, who recently sat in for Steve Van Zandt), spent time in a Sydney studio during their recent Australian tour. “We’ve never had a recording session during a tour in our lives, Springsteen explained/ “We did a couple of things that I wanted to put down. So that was very exciting. And being with Tommy was exciting. The band – Steven, Nils, all those guys – continues to be a source of inspiration for me.”
Springsteen didn’t give a timetable for the new album’s release, but presumabl he’ll head back into the studio following the remainder of the band’s tour dates.
