Bruce Springsteen is finally ready to deliver his long-awaited album Western Stars.
The American music legend announced Thursday that the solo record will be out June 14, following it up with the release of the album’s first country-influenced single “Hello Sunshine”, just after midnight on Friday.
According to Variety, the official announcement describes Western Stars as taking Springsteen’s music “to a new place, drawing inspiration in part from the Southern California pop records of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. The 13 tracks of Western Stars encompass a sweeping range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope.”
Western Stars will be Springsteen’s first studio album since High Hopes, released in 2014.
The announcement also revealed the tracklist for the new album:
1. Hitch Hikin’
2. The Wayfarer
3. Tucson Train
