Bruce Springsteen announces new album, Western Stars


Bruce Springsteen has announced details of a new album, Western Stars.

His first new studio album in five years, it will be released on June 14 by Columbia Records. It will be available for pre-order on Friday, April 26.

The album was recorded primarily at Springsteen’s home studio in New Jersey with additional recording in California and New York.

“This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements,” says Springsteen. “It’s a jewel box of a record.”
