Springsteen Lashing Out?

The growing disparity in opportunity and income in the US is weighing on Bruce Springsteen according to a source that claims to have heard some of the new material on what will be Bruce's next album.  A Hollywood Reporter account on the as yet untitled album says it will make an angry statement about corporate greed and governmental indifference to the plight increasing numbers of Americans confront.  Describing the songs on the album as including, 'unexpected textures - loops, electronic percussion' and a range of influences involving everything from hip-hop to traditional Irish folk, the album sounds to be a departure that many Springsteen and E Street Band fans may find challenging to warm to.  There is a good chance that we'll learn more about the album and possibly hear it around the time that The Boss delivers the keynote address to musicians and industry types at the SXSW music conference in Austin, TX on March 15.
