Landau tells Rolling Stone: “It’s a rock record that combines elements of both Bruce’s classic sound and his ‘Seeger Sessions’ experience, with new textures and styles”.

Co-produced by Springsteen and studio veteran Ron Aniello, the album also features a guest appearances by Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello and session drummer Matt Chamberlain.
