According to unconfirmed fan reports, Bruce Springsteen may be prepping a surprise soul covers collection for release before the end of the year. The “Boss”-centric None But The Brave podcast tweeted: “As we mentioned on the last episode about rumblings of a new Springsteen release, those rumblings have gotten much louder and we expect Bruce to release a soul covers record this fall. A small number of shows to promote it are also expected. Count us as intrigued.”
Springsteen’s one and only other covers collection was 2006’s We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. The set peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and snagged the Grammy Award for that year’s Best Traditional Folk Album.
