Bruce Springsteen has revealed that he and The E Street Band have almost finished work on a new studio album, their eighteenth to date. This will mark their first release since the death earlier this year of E Street saxophonist and founding member, Clarence Clemons.

A statement on the band’s website reads: “Well, things are starting to heat up down on E Street. We want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we’re planning for 2012. That’s all the info we have for right now, but we’ll get back to you – real soon”.

The message comes with more concrete news of several UK dates, the first at Sunderland’s Stadium Of Light on 21 Jun, and the second at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium the following day. Springsteen et al are also booked to headline at next year’s Isle Of Wight and Hard Rock Calling festivals.
