New album: Magic

Due October 2

It's official. Springsteen's first album with the E Street Band since 2002's The Rising drops in less than seven weeks, and it's called Magic.

According to manager Jon Landau, quoted in today's press release from Shore Fire Media, this one's a rocker: "Magic is a high energy rock CD. It's light on its feet, incredibly well played by Bruce and the members of the E Street Band, and, as always, has plenty to say. It's also immensely entertaining. Magic is the third collaboration between Bruce and Brendan O'Brien and is a culmination of their very productive creative relationship."

O'Brien produced and mixed the album at his home base in Atlanta, Southern Tracks Recording Studio.

The lyrics for "Radio Nowhere":

Radio Nowhere

I was trying to find my way home,

But all I heard was a drone.

Bouncin' off a satellite

Crushing the last long American night.

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

I was sitting around a dirt dial

Just another lost number in a file.

Been in some kinda dark cove

Just searching for a world with some soul.

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

Is there anybody alive out there?

I just want to hear some rhythm.

I just want to hear some rhythm

I just want to hear some rhythm.

I just want to hear some rhythm.

I want a thousand guitars.

I want pounding drums.

I want a million different voices speaking in tongues.

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

Is there anybody alive out there?

I was driving thru the misty rain

Yeah, searching for a mystery train.

Bopping thru the wild blue

Trying to make a connection with you.

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

This is radio nowhere.

Is there anybody alive out there?

Is there anybody alive out there?

I just want to hear some rhythm

I just want to hear some rhythm

I just want to hear you swoon.

Jesse M's solo work has been a revelation, in light of his NY Dolls/G'n'R/Dead Boys-ish last band D Generation.....(although I think Ryan Adams gets way too much credit for "discovering" him...a good friend of mine from NYC who's known him for years says he's always been an excellent singer/songwriter in that vein).

I've heard the Springsteen CD and I can't say enough about how good it is. His best in years. The single "Radio Nowhere" is probably the weakest song on it. Add to the track listing "Terry's Song", a tribute to his late friend Terry McGovern.

My favorite track "Girls in Their Summer Clothes". Its got a slight PetSounds era Beach Boys feel to the rhythm (sort of like "Cruisin' Music"), a great melody and lyrics that really invoke a sense of nostalgia for me. Brilliant song! Brilliant album.
