    The Boss to release new E Street Band album

    Bruce Springsteen to Release New E Street Band Album in Fall
    Wednesday, July 11, 2007

    By Roger Friedman

    The general disarray at Sony Music's Columbia Records may have a savior: Bruce Springsteen.

    The Boss, as we still call him, is apparently planning a new album for release in late fall. Some sources insist that this will be an E Street Band album, and not another side project like the "Seeger Sessions" or a solo collection of introspective songs.

    An E Street Band album means a big rock 'n' roll sound with Springsteen's featured players like Steve van Zandt, Max Weinberg and Clarence Clemons.

    Sources tell me that tracks have been recorded with the group, and that the hope among Bruce insiders is that he will choose their project over several others he may have cooking.

    "You never know," one observer said, "but it's looking better and better."

    Another and very important player would be Springsteen's wife: rocker Patti Scialfa. The timing would be perfect since Scialfa one of my favorite female rockers already has an album set for release in early September.

    "Play It As It Lays" is Scialfa's first new set of songs since "23rd Street Lullaby," which was released three years ago. Patti is already booked on "Letterman" and the "Today" show as well as "The View," where she may have to co-host if Barbara Walters doesn't find replacements for her departed panelists.

    For Bruce, a new album would be the first E Street Band release since "The Rising," his magnificent recording about 9/11. That album sold better than any previous Springsteen albums and picked up a number of Grammy nominations. Springsteen lost the award for best album to Norah Jones' debut, if you recall.

    If you never tried it, pick up "The Rising" or download some of its amazing tracks like "Empty Sky" or "You're Missing."

    The latter song, which had a serious message, could also be the theme song at Sony these days. Quite a few people are missing and they're not coming back. I'm told that layoffs are continuing, with several departments in publicity and marketing gutted.

    When I mentioned this to a Sony higher-up the other day, the person replied: "You are the last one writing about the record business. Don't you realize it's over?"

    Maybe, but if so, what do I do with my 1,200 45s and thousands of CDs? Not everything fits in a computer. And when the Springsteen album comes out, I don't want to listen to it on earbuds, but through my Rogue tube amplifier and Sequerra Met 7 speakers. Loud, baby, loud.

    That's alright... let whoever wants to poke fun at the boss... they're just jealous.

    And on another musical note, RJF, I couldn't help but notice the National in your sig. What a freakin album... definitely my favorite of the summer... and their first, Alligator, was sweet as well. Great great band Id love to see them live.

    I can't stop listening to it. It was great the first time I heard it, and the second time around I was just baffled. Definitely one of the top 2-3 albums out so far.

    That's New Yorkers for you.

    Bad drivers and quick to rip on Jersey at any opportunity, even if it's unwarranted.

    The good news is that the Jets play here, and they ain't going anywhere.

    Bruce officially "jumped the shark" when he put his wife in the band.

    Yeah Yoko Scalfia was really needed in the E Street Band. I'm sure they love her.

    Lol. I love Bruce, but im with FF2 on this one. Patty flat out stinks. It doesnt really significantly affect my opinion on the band, but i dont really care for her.
