I was inspired by Levi Stubbs, David Reuven, Jimmy Reuven, Snowman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobby Gray, Scott Walker, and others. And I have tried to do justice to them all and to all the wonderful authors of such wonderful music. My goal is to allow contemporary audiences to experience the beauty and joy of these songs, as I have since the first time I heard them. I hope you listen to them as much as I loved making them.” On youtu.be/usSLCdiRoAw a video message from Bruce Springsteen about the new album being produced at Thrill Hill Recording in New Jersey and produced by Ron Aniello, with Rob Lebret as sound engineer and John Landau as executive producer. “Only The Strong Survive” comes two years after “Letter To You” (2020), which debuted at number one on the Fimi/Gfk best-selling album and vinyl chart and was certified platinum in Italy. 2023 will see a return on Bruce Springsteen Road and The E Street Band, with a string of dates in the US and Europe, including Italy, which has so far sold more than 1.6 million tickets.
