Before the pandemic threw a wrench into the works, Bruce Springsteen said that there was a new E Street Band album and tour in the works. Live shows are obviously off the table for now, but might we still get a new album? The Asbury Park Press reports that producer Ron Aniello, who has worked with Springsteen since 2012, posted an Instagram story with the text "It's coming..." over black and white video of a stormy sea.
Aniello has been a constant presence at the NJ studio at Bruce Springsteen's home, Bruce's wife, Patti Scialfa (who is also working on a new album), told Rolling Stone recently. “We’ve been sharing a studio, and Bruce has just been so prolific lately that it’s hard for me to get in there,” Scialfa said. “He’s always like, ‘I have to go do this thing and that thing.’" Meanwhile, E Street Band member Nils Lofgren told the "What's Up on E Street?" podcast that the new music is "as great a record in the works as I ever heard Bruce make and that's saying a lot.”
