Bruce Springsteen to Release New Album July 30
Bruce Springsteen will release his first all-new studio recording with the E Street Band in 18 years on July 30, a 14-song compilation titled “The Rising.”
Springsteen’s public relations company confirmed the release date, which had been widely circulating on fan web sites for the last several weeks, in a statement on Monday.
The album, to be released on Columbia Records, a unit of Sony Corp. was recorded earlier this year at Southern Tracks Recording in Atlanta and produced by Brendan O’Brien, a producer best known for his work with the group Pearl Jam.
While some E Street Band members played on the 1987 Springsteen release “Tunnel of Love”, “The Rising” marks the first recording with the entire band since 1984’s multi-platinum “Born in the U.S.A.,” the statement said.
Springsteen, a perfectionist whose releases are few and far between, put out “Lucky Town” and “Human Touch” simultaneously in 1992. “The Boss” broke from the E Streeters on those recordings and the tour that followed by hiring a new set of hired guns to back him.
The statement made no mention of a concert tour to promote “The Rising.” In April 1999, Springsteen and the band launched a “reunion” tour in Barcelona, Spain, which ended in July of the following year at Madison Square Garden in New York. The final performance of that tour was used for a CD, DVD and HBO special, all titled “Live in New York City.”
