Bruce Springsteen "Jack of All Trades"
Published Feb 22, 2012Another day, another cut from Bruce Springsteen's forthcoming LP Wrecking Ball. The Boss is continuing in his campaign to release a new song from the album each day, and today it's the fourth track, "Jack of All Trades."
This one is a slow, piano-based ballad that finds Bruce crooning about his talent for blue-collar labour (and subtly pointing out some of America's economic inequalities) while a gentle beat keeps a slow but steady pulse for six minutes.
There's a faint mariachi flavour once the horns enter halfway through, and the track eventually turns into an epic power ballad in the final minute with a ascendant, cloud-scraping guitar solo. But you better listen to this one now: the song will only be available for 24 hours.
Wrecking Ball is due out on March 6 via Columbia Records. You can order the album here.
UPDATE: This stream was only available for 24 hours and is no longer available.
