January might offer hope for believers of more than just President Elect Barack Obama. Avid Obama supporter Bruce Springsteen will reportedly release a new album around the time of the inauguration. According to the fan site Backstreets, the artist has been working on the album since the fall.
The reports are fueled by the wealth of addiitonal material from Springsteen's 2007 release, 'Magic,' as well as sightings of the rocker in Atlanta, where he recorded 'Magic' and 'The Rising' with producer Brendan O'Brien. In addition, Springsteen debuted a new song, 'Workin' on a Dream,' in Cleveland at an Obama rally two days before the election.
Very little else is known about the album, including whether it will be another E Street Band effort or solo project, a la 2005's 'Devils and Dust.' Springsteen and the E Street Band are set to play the Super Bowl on February 1, which comes as good news for fans who worried about the future of the group after the passing of original E Street Band keyboardist Danny Federici earlier this year. On the last stop of the 'Magic' tour in Milwaukee this past August, Springsteen reassured the crowd, however, saying, "We're just getting started."
