Bruce Springsteen is prepping for the release of a box set that contains five previously unheard albums, primarily recorded during the 90s.
In a new interview the Boss said, “I have a box set of five unreleased albums that are basically post-1988. People look at my work in the ’90s and they go, ‘The ’90s wasn’t a great decade for Bruce. He was kind of doing this and he wasn’t in the E Street Band.’ I actually made a lot of music during that period of time. I actually made albums. For one reason or another, the timing wasn’t right or whatever; I didn’t put them out.”
Springsteen put together the collection after spending a winter “completely cleaning out the vault.”
The set will be arriving “in the near future” and also revealed that he is on his way to completing a follow up to his latest LP, “Only the Strong Survive.”
He said, “Volume 2, I would say, is probably three-quarters recorded, It’s very similar. I continued working in soul music because I was just having so much fun. But I thought of doing a series of these records in a variety of different genres with songs that I love. I would love to do one record of country music. I would love to do a rock record. There’s just so many different things, and all focused around my voice, all focused around how well I’m singing. I’d really like to use this time when I’m not writing to really focus on my vocals.”
