Bruce Springsteen celebrates the American railways in his new music video for “Tucson Train,” the latest single off his forthcoming album “Western Stars.”
Released late last week, the black-and-white clip (above) features the Boss and his sizable band rocking out in the recording studio as he sings about everything from failed romances to the cleansing power of hard work while the character he embodies awaits the arrival of an old flame via the titular Tucson train.
“Tucson Train” serves as the third single released from “Western Stars," following “Hello Sunshine” and “There Goes My Miracle.” Previously, the rock legend described his much-anticipated new album as in the tradition of Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, and Burt Bacharach's 1970s records. “I don’t know if people will hear those influences, but that was what I had in my mind,” he told Variety in 2017.
“Western Stars” serves as Bruce’s first studio release since 2014's “High Hopes,” but he has remained busy since then touring the world, putting on an exclusive show for SiriusXM subscribers, and masterminding his own Tony-winning concert special, “Springsteen on Broadway.”
Bruce Springsteen’s “Western Stars” is available June 14.
