MP3 Stream New Springsteen
posted by August 28 at 10:35 AMon
A new Springsteen single, “Radio Nowhere,” is available for streaming on the Guardian UK website. The track is taken from the Boss’ upcoming album Magic, set for an October 2 release date. Magic reunites Springsteen with the E Street Band for the first time since 2004.
“Radio Nowhere” is a dense, dark rocker that, like some of Tom Petty’s recent stuff, bemoans the vapid state of American radio and its reflection of American culture. It’s a now-common Boomer trope that still manages to hold a bit of relevance when delivered by patriarchs like Petty and Springsteen. It’s also a pretty damn catchy tune that features the first alright use of a sax solo since I can remember.
Why the hell is it posted on the Guardian UK website, though? Why isn’t this all over MySpace, MSN, and Yahoo?
At least it’s miles ahead of that crappy new Eagles song.
