Becoming a planetary star with his hit “Born in the USA,” Bruce Springsteen is an iconic figure in US rock. It’s when he first sees Elvis Presley at the Ed Sullivan Show that the so-called “The Boss” falls in love with rock. In 1972 he formed the E Street Band with guitarist Steve Van Zandt and saxophonist Clarence Clemons. The album Born to Run opens their doors to success in 1975.
Thanks to Jonathan Demma’s “Street Of Philadelphia”, Jonathan Demme’s heartbreaking piece for film, he received the Oscar for Best Original Song. First known for its flamboyant rock, Springsteen turns to more and more intimate music, as evidenced by the 2005 Devils And Dust albums and We Shall Overcome, his only all-out album released the following year. Talented musician, incomparable showman (his concerts can last more than three hours), Bruce Springsteen is an integral part of the American musical heritage.
Succeeding Magic and Working on a Dream, The Promise brings together 22 unreleased songs from recording sessions dating back to the late 1970s. Wrecking Ball, released in 2012, marked a musical evolution and an opening to new styles, from folk to gospel to hip-hop (“Rocky Road”). Bruce found the E Street Band in 2014 for the recording of High Hopes. Five years after this record unanimously praised by critics, he announces his big comeback with Western Stars, the first solo album since 2005. The Boss is back!
