Bruce Springsteen has released the hopeful new single “Hello Sunshine,” the first from his forthcoming album Western Stars.
“Hello Sunshine” deals with themes of optimism and nostalgia, set to the powerful accompaniment of steel guitars and associative visions of open roads. The new track is as classic as the Springsteen name itself, cuing listeners into what fans can expect from the forthcoming album that he describes as “a jewel box of a record.”
Springsteen declares in his quintessentially raspy croon in the single, “You know I always loved a lonely town / Those empty streets, no one around / You fall in love with lonely, you end up that way.”
