Bruce Springsteen has revealed that he had recently written a whole new album to be recorded with the E Street Band.
Springsteen also admitted that it had taken him seven long years to be able to do so, reflecting on how he was unsure with what sparked the idea and considered the possibility that he would never manage it again.
"It’s like I’ve spent about seven years without writing anything for the band," Springsteen tells Martin Scorsese. "I couldn’t write anything for the band. And I said, 'Well, of course… you’ll never be able to do that again! And it’s a trick every time you do it, you know? But it’s a trick that, because of that fact that you can’t explain, cannot be self-consciously duplicated. It has to come to you in inspiration."
He continued saying that he wrote "almost an album's worth of material" for the E Street Band just over a month ago. "I mean, I know where it came from, but at the same time, it just came out of almost nowhere. And it was good, you know. I had about two weeks of those little daily visitations, and it was so nice."
It makes you so happy. You go, ‘F—, I’m not f—ed, all right? There’ll be another tour!
