Bruce Springsteen on ‘Anomaly’ of a New Album ‘High Hopes’

by Rachel Baker on December 18, 2013

In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stones, Bruce  talks about his new album High Hopes, the possibility of a 2014 tour, his recording process and a whole lot more.

Springsteen has always written and recorded significantly more songs than can fit on to whatever album he’s creating at the moment. “I have a lot of this music on a computer,” he says. “I bring it out on the road to amuse myself. Very often, if I have nothing to do late at night I’ll bring it up and look at different bodies of music.”

The songs that began catching Springsteen’s attention were largely recorded after he reunited with the E Street Band in 1999. “The songs were relatively current and had a similar sound picture,” he says. “I was interested in putting this material together in some form because it sounded like it all fit together. . .You have to imagine that when I’m home or done with a tour I go into a studio and I’m surrounded by paintings that I’ve sorta half-finished. There might be something wrong with this one and I didn’t have time to finish this one. When I go into my studio, I’m surrounded by all my music that I haven’t released. I wait to see what’s going to speak to me.”
