Bruce Springsteen: Covers The Commodores On New Album
Bruce Springsteen has a new album set to hit the streets on November 11th and the first single is a cover of The Commodores 1985 hit song “Nightshift”! The album is titled “Only The Strong Survive” and it’s a tribute to his R&B idols of the 60’s and 70’s. The Mike & Carla Morning Show shared a clip of The Commodore’s song he covers and already “Boss” fans are giving it a thumbs up.
Bruce also decided to bring in some of his idols from that era to help out on some of the tracks…namely Sam Moore! According to BruceSpringsteen.net, “I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray, and Scott Walker, among many others. I’ve tried to do justice to them all…”
Some of the other tracks on the album include the songs:
I Wish It Would Rain
Some Day We’ll Be Together
I Forgot To Be Your Lover
When She Was My Girl
…and many more!
It’s the first time that Bruce has done an album of cover songs since 1986 when he put out “We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions”. This shows a totally different side of “The Boss” that we haven’t heard in a while and critics are saying that he nails every one of the titles on the album! It might be something different for this artist, but he sounds great and seems he had a lot of fun doing the tracks!
