Bruce Springsteen's "Western Stars" Video Is a Total Heartbreaker
Bruce Springsteen's new album Western Stars is out today, and marking the occasion, the Boss has also given us a video for its title track. And we have to say, it's quite the tearjerker.

The song tells the story of an aging actor who goes from once being shot by John Wayne onscreen to now doing credit card ads. And with such depressing source material, it's no surprise the video is a moody one, with Springsteen sombrely sitting sitting by the bar, in his car and then playing up on stage alongside his band.

Watch the video for "Western Stars" down below.
