[ # ] Bruce Springsteen is releasing an album full of Soul covers
September 29th, 2022 under Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen announced today that he is releasing a new album on November 11th. Only the Strong Survive is unlike anything else he is done. That is because a record full of Soul, Gospel, and Motown covers.

“I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray, and Scott Walker, among many others,” The Boss said. “I’ve tried to do justice to them all—and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music. My goal is for the modern audience to experience its beauty and joy, just as I have since I first heard it. I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved making it.”

To see the 15-song tracklist, and to hear the first single from it, then

1. Only the Strong Survive
2. Soul Days feat. Sam Moore
3. Nightshift
4. Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)
5. The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore
6. Turn Back the Hands of Time
7. When She Was My Girl
8. Hey, Western Union Man
9. I Wish It Would Rain
10. Don’t Play That Song
11. Any Other Way
12. I Forgot to Be Your Lover feat. Sam Moore
13. 7 Rooms of Gloom
14. What Becomes of the Brokenhearted
15. Someday We’ll Be Together

If the rest of the album is as good as Do I Love You (Indeed I Do), then I am going to pre-order it here right now. Is there anything he can’t do? Nope, and that is why he is the boss.
