Bruce Springsteen teases series of new projects

Bruce Springsteen teased a series of new projects on his schedule during a New Year’s Eve interview with Sirius XM’s E Street Radio.

While the fall 2020 release of “Letter To You” with the E Street Band was expected to see the return of the group to the road before the pandemic shut down the live music industry, the New Jersey rocker still sees a tour on the horizon.

“We’ll be out there and that might be 2022, somewhere in the new year of 2022,” shared Springsteen. “And I’m completely projecting because no one really knows, but that’s what I think according to all the information that’s available.”

In the meantime, the singer says he has plans for a busy 2021.

“I have some projects coming up this year that I won’t tell, because it’s gonna be a secret and then a big surprise,” he revealed. “But I do have things to keep me busy this year that I’ll be doing that should give the fans something to bide their time with, you know?”

In an extensive interview with Rolling Stone last fall, Springsteen referenced ongoing activity with outtakes from his archives that may surface on a second volume of “Tracks” or in some other formats.

“There’s a lot of really good music left,” said Springsteen at the time. “You just go back there. It’s not that hard. If I pull out something from 1980, or 1985, or 1970, it’s amazing how you can slip into that voice. It’s just sort of a headspace. All of those voices remain available to me, if I want to go to them.”

Produced by Ron Aniello and the singer, “Letter To You” – which included three previously-unreleased songs from the 1970s – debuted at No. 1 in 11 countries and earned a No. 2 spot on the US Billboard 200.
