Columbia Records will release Bruce Springsteen‘s new studio album on November 11.
Featuring lead vocals by Springsteen, Only The Strong Survive includes 15 songs from the catalogues of Motown, Gamble and Huff, Stax and many more.
This 21st studio album from Springsteen will also feature guest vocals by Sam Moore, as well as contributions from The E Street Horns, full string arrangements by Rob Mathes, and backing vocals by Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, Michelle Moore, Curtis King Jr., Dennis Collins and Fonzi Thornton.
Speaking about the album, Springsteen said, “I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray, and Scott Walker, among many others.”
“I’ve tried to do justice to them all-and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music. My goal is for the modern audience to experience its beauty and joy, just as I have since I first heard it. I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved making it,” he added. Springsteen also shared the official music video for “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)” with a special introduction from The Boss.
Springsteen will reunite with the legendary E Street Band in February for his 2023 international tour.
