SPRINGSTEEN DEBUTS NEW SONG AT FINAL RALLY FOR OBAMA
Four years later, nearly to the day, and there was Bruce, once again, on the stump in the battleground state of Ohio in the final hours of a presidential campaign, doing his best to get a Democratic president back in the Oval Office. With four more years of history to chew on, Springsteen has been energetic in his support for Barack Obama at a total now of four rallies in the past month, including Sunday afternoon's Change We Need rally in Cleveland. Yes, it was the same mall, in the shadow of the same, cold, neo-classical government buildings, where Springsteen joined John Kerry on November 1, 2004. This time around, though, more of an air of cautious confidence was evident as Bruce contributed his final set to the cause and introduced Obama's family to his own. "This time!" Bruce said, "This time!"

"I was here a while back, in 2004," Springsteen told the crowd, adding, "I'm glad they let me come back -- that they didn't think I might jinx them or something." A six-song set, similar to the Columbus set a couple weeks ago, added a welcomed duet with Patti on a new song: "Workin' on a Dream." The song has been recorded for the follow-up to Magic, which Springsteen has been working on this fall, an album expected to see release around the time of the Presidential Inauguration in January 2009.




How was the show, Rob?

This week keeps getting better and better. The Boss is the man.

Holy hot damn. Never saw this coming. Bagged going down on Sunday. Didn't think it wise to insert my son into a mass of humanity for 3 to 4 hours and nowhere to move. I spoke with others who went, and I'd have gone if I didn't have him, most stuck to the perimeters for easier escape and thus watched on monitors. Did you see and download A Night With The Jersey Devil on his site?

Yeah, loved Jersey Devil, the tune. Thought the video was kinda lame on the front end, but it got better later. It seemed to take him a while to get into character.

Wow cool. And Bruce with a whistle solo? What the hell, all the kids are doing it. Gotta admit, of his recent studio output, Rising and Seeger Sessions are the only ones I find myself going back to. But either way, i'm excited. (howdy norton!)

Album's called Working on a Dream and comes out January 27.

Tracklist:
01 Outlaw Pete
02 My Lucky Day
03 Working on a Dream
04 Queen of the Supermarket
05 What Love Can Do
06 This Life
07 Good Eye
08 Tomorrow Never Knows
09 Life Itself
10 Kingdom of Days
11 Surprise, Surprise
12 The Last Carnival
13 The Wrestler *
14 A Night With the Jersey Devil *

I'm a little worried that it's again produced by Brendan O' Brien. That news combined with the fact that these songs were recorded so soon after Magic makes me think it won't be that different from that album and that it will suffer from the same production woes.

I hear this. I think magic showed all sorts of potential to be awesome, but fell sort of flat.
I'm still holding out hope for this though. The boss kills.
Seeger Sessions was magic.

As long as he has another awesome, giant tour following the release I will be content. I saw him in Chicago and, a few months later, I saw him in Indianapolis. The man's live shows are epic. I could give two shits about how good this album will be. Sure, I want it to be amazing, but when does he really disappoint? I enjoyed Magic. He's The Boss. He's the man. I have only heard the single and I enjoyed it. It would be a blessing if this was as good as The Rising. That was the older, more mature Boss at his best.

Swish.

Yeah, I can't wait. I kind of doubt he'll tour until maybe summer. Then, who knows, maybe not even an E Street tour. The last one just ended in late summer. I typically get to about 3 shows on each tour. Magic vs. The Rising. Tough call. I'd rank them fairly even. By the way, the new album news is on his site.

can't decide how i feel about it yet. at first, it's almost too basic. but that chorus melody is damn pretty and sticks in your head. very orbison.

And a pose worthy of Joe Strummer.

Pretty good tune, working a similar vein as "Girls In Their Summer Clothes", but not quite reaching the greatness of that song.
