I've heard, and have been lamenting that he probably won't get to tour this album.

Thanks Diane,
I wasn’t aware of this impending new album!
If that title song is typical of what it contains then we are in for a treat :D

EDIT:
Here's the tracklist and other info from https://pitchfork.com/news/bruce-spring ... ng-listen/

01 One Minute You’re Here
02 Letter to You
03 Burnin Train
04 Janey Needs a Shooter
05 Last Man Standing
06 The Power of Prayer
07 House of a Thousand Guitars
08 Rainmaker
09 If I Was the Priest
10 Ghosts
11 Song tor Orphans
12 I’ll See You in My Dreams
The tracklist includes new recordings of three songs that were outtakes from some of his ’70s albums: “Janey Needs a Shooter,” “If I Was the Priest,” and “Song for Orphans.”

I guess not, but that'd be a helluva way to break the music-lockdown :D .

I agree! Another thing that strikes me is that The Seeger Sessions was similarly a 'live-recorded' studio album - and one of his best...


btw, Springsteen's current episode of his 'From my Home to Yours' series is available on bbc radio 2 on catchup in the UK. (Looks like it's available elsewhere on other platforms.)
This week Bruce presents his "rock'n'roll requiem" for the victims of Covid-19, with music from Elvis Presley, Paul Robeson, Fugazi, 2Pac, the York College Concert Choir, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke and more!
