I type this post listening to a track from Bruce Springsteen’s soon-to-be-released album, Wrecking Ball. The tune’s called “Shackled and Drawn” and it’s not bad at all. A whole lot better than anything on his previous album, Working on a Dream, which I thought was generally lousy.
Springsteen’s marketing team is doing something interesting this time around: Beginning yesterday (Monday), they’re previewing one song on one of several websites every day until the album is released on March 6. Today’s song is streaming at Rollingstone.com. For a complete guide to the one-track-a-day release schedule, stop in at Backstreets.com.
