Hear Working On A Dream now
Bruce Springsteen's new album Working On A Dream doesn't come out until 27 January, but you can hear it in its entirety right now.
The Boss has allowed his 24th album, the follow-up to 2007's Magic, to stream in full all week before its physical release date.
Album includes The Wrestler
It's apparent that more sonic experimention was the order of the day on the new disc.
Working On A Dream features 12 tracks plus a bonus cut, the Golden Globe-winning title track to Darren Aronofsky's film The Wrestler.
In many ways, Working On A Dream is a companion to Magic - Springsteen and producer Brendan O'Brien cut the album quickly, barely taking a break between records. But on first listen it's apparent that more sonic experimention was the order of the day on the new disc.
Although Working On A Dream is clearly a pop album, Springsteen gives a nod or two to his past - the opening cut is a majestic eight-minute song called Outlaw Pete that recalls the epic storytelling of his Wild, Innocent & E Street Shuffle days.
