Excellent. I've been out of the loop in terms of Springsteen news for ages, so I had no idea this was coming.

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

Must say, I'm instantly impressed with this song. I'm a sucker for sad bastard country music, so this is right up my alley.

"You know I always liked my walking shoes
But you can get a little too fond of the blues
You walk too far, you walk away
Hello sunshine, won't you stay"

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

Looks like Pitchfork liked it too.

Quote:

“This is where the country opens up and things get a little weird,” Bruce Springsteen writes in his memoir about a pivotal road trip out west. It was the early ’80s and he was learning, for the first time, how to cope with depression in a real way. “As Sisyphus can count on the rock,” he writes. “I can always count on the road, the music, and the miles for whatever ails me.” Here is the implicit promise of his music, presented with all the burdens and hard consequences attached. Remember: the door is open but the ride ain’t free.

His gorgeous new song “Hello Sunshine” takes place somewhere on the journey. Its friendly, country arrangement sits within a long lineage of radio classics: “Everybody’s Talkin,’” “Gentle on My Mind,” “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues,” all songs borne from quiet barrooms in the early hours of the morning. As if to prove his place among them, Springsteen spends an entire verse humming along, strings guiding the way like light from a jukebox. Amid the glow, he’s surrounded by pedal steel raining on the windows, a hushed honky-tonk piano in the corner, a brush-stroked rhythm section that feels like running in place on a soft dirt road. Bold but lived-in, it’s the most vivid his music has sounded in at least two decades.

The words are sparse but important. The road is “empty” not “open.” Sunshine is a passing stranger not an absent friend. “You walk too far, you walk away,” he cautions in a low, weathered croon. As the first single from an album that’s been sidelined for the better part of the decade—first for an Obama-era protest statement, later for a jubilant if backward-looking E Street Band tour, and most recently for a one-man Broadway show that turned the span of his songbook into a seemingly complete narrative with a (mostly) happy ending—its pulse feels particularly inspired. It’s a song about changing your ways while there are still miles left to travel, sung by someone with the landscape etched into his heart.

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

It's very poppy. Not as strong as the first song, but that chorus got stuck in my head after a single listen.

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

Both tracks are amazing to me, musically and vocally. Lyrically, despite bordering on cliche at points, they still manage to hit home thanks to Total Boss Conviction (TBC) and their universality. After not loving a Bruce album since The Rising, I am VERY much looking forward to this one.

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

Really like the big, orchestral sound on this one. Each of the songs released so far has been quite different from the others. Should be a really interesting album.

Re: bruce springsteen / western stars [06.14]

Excellent Bruce album that only gets better with each listen. I even love There Goes My Miracle and don't find it overwrought like many others seem to. I mean, I ain't dumb, I can see that, and maybe I'm just a wreck, but that chorus fucking kills me, man.

The Boss!

I liked it OK, but I'm a bit surprised by all of the love it's getting. Maybe it'll take a few more listens.

No-one could ever accuse Springsteen of missing a marketing opportunity. Not that I'm complaining - I'll look forward to this.
