Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars [2LP] (gatefold)
Double LP Features Single "Hello Sunshine"!
The Boss returns with his first new studio album in five years. Western Stars is released on Columbia Records and is largely influenced by the Southern California pop sounds of the late '60s and early '70s.
"This record is a return to my solo recordings," Springsteen says in a statement, "featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements. It's a jewel box of a record."
Springsteen reunited with producer Ron Aniello for Western Stars. The two previously worked together on Springsteen's last two studio albums, 2014's High Hopes and 2012's Wrecking Ball. The Western Stars album also features guest appearances by more than 20 other players, including multi-instrumentalist and composer Jon Brion, violinist and singer Soozie Tyrell and former E Street Band member David Sancious.
The first single from the Western Stars album is "Hello Sunshine".
