By Josiah HughesYesterday (January 18), we revealed that rock'n'roll legend Bruce Springsteen would be unveiling a brand new single called "We Take Care of Our Own" today. Now, the plot thickens as the Boss has announced a full album.
According to a UK iTunes listing [via Consequence of Sound], Wrecking Ball will drop on March 6 in North America and a day earlier abroad. Album opener "We Take Care of Our Own" can be streamed below.
The new record is called Wrecking Ball and will be Springsteen's 17th album overall. Rolling Stone reports that the album was produced by Ron Aniello and features guest spots from Tom Morello and studio drummer Matt Chamberlain. Sources told the Hollywood Reporter that the album is "an amazing sweep of influences and rhythms, from hip-hop to Irish folk rhythms."
Now we just need Springsteen to confirm the world tour he promised at the end of 2011.
