New Springsteen album due in January
Expected release around time of inaugurationBruce Springsteen's next album is expected for release around the time of Barack Obama's January inauguration as the 44th president of the United States next January, according to Backstreets.com.
The follow-up to 2007's "Magic" will likely contain the song "Workin' on a Dream," which Springsteen debuted last weekend at an Obama rally in Cleveland.
No other information is known about the project, and a rep for the artist was unavailable for comment. Springsteen is known to have had a wealth of material left over from "Magic" sessions with producer Brendan O'Brien, but it's unknown whether any of those songs will make the cut.
The artist campaigned tirelessly for Obama during the homestretch of the election, playing fundraisers and rallies across the country. Tonight, he will perform at New York's Town Hall as part of the Stand Up for Heroes benefit, alongside his wife Patti Scialfa and comedians Whoopi Goldberg and Ricky Gervais.
