E Street Band members Max Weinberg and Nils Lofgren are raving about Bruce Springsteen's upcoming album, Letter To You, which drops on October 23rd. Max Weinberg told APP.com that the collection needs to taken in during one long sitting, explaining, "Go out and buy the actual record. By the way, this is a great album, and it's an album, it's 58 minutes long, you'll want to listen from the first song to the last. I've tried to explain that to some teenagers today, and they do not get that. Play it from the first song to the last and it tells a story that is greater than each individual song."
He went on to say, "If you like the album The River, did you?, you're going to like Bruce’s new record. Keep you eyes out for a band from New Jersey called Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band because we will be back!"
During a chat on the new podcast CLE Rocks, Nils Lofgren revealed that the E Street Band was seriously gearing up for a 2021 tour: ["We were very optimistic. We were headed towards a good year of touring next year with Bruce. I mean, it was certainly a great idea that we were all working toward. Of course, it all went away."] SOUNDCUE (:09 OC: . . . all went away)
Lofgren — who's always been a unabashed Springsteen fan apart from his tenure in the E Street Band — went on to say that Letter To You is a special album: ["The involvement I've had in it — man, I think it's a brilliant record. I mean, Bruce doesn't make bad records, but as all of them have their own stamp, this is a very unusual, powerful record."] SOUNDCUE (:11 OC: . . . unusual powerful record)
