A new year, some new Bruce

"Working on a Dream"

"Working on a Dream"

Obviously, anyone who is a Springsteen fan has heard by now that his new album, “Working on a Dream,” will be released Jan. 27, just days after Barack Obama’s inauguration and just days before his Super Bowl halftime performance.

The first two songs, the title track and “My Lucky Day” are available online already (see iTunes or Amazon.com). You can also watch both. I’ve embedded both at the end of this post.

Here’s the track listing for the album:

1. Outlaw Pete
2. My Lucky Day
3. Working On a Dream
4. Queen of the Supermarket
5. What Love Can Do
6. This Life
7. Good Eye
8. Tomorrow Never Knows
9. Life Itself
10. Kingdom of Days
11. Surprise, Surprise
12. The Last Carnival
Bonus track:
The Wrestler

A couple of notes …

  • According to Billboard magazine, the opening track, “Outlaw Pete,” is a whopping eight minutes long.
  • Also, the late Danny Federici, as well as his son, Jason, appear on the album.
  • The album will be packaged with a DVD containing studio footage. I can only assume the two videos already available will be part of that DVD,
  • Several news outlets are already a reporting there will be a tour to accompany the album, beginning in the spring in Europe.
  • And in what should be old news, but isn’t, “Girls in Their Summer Clothes,” from 2007’s “Magic” has been nominated for two Grammys — Best Rock Song (against Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, Kings of Leon, and Coldplay) and Best Solo Rock Performance (against John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Eddie Vedder, and Neil Young). The 51st Grammy Awards air at Sunday, Feb 8 on CBS.
