Nearly 50 years after being signed to Columbia Records — Bruce Springsteen is still writing songs he hopes will matter to his audience. With the Top Two success of his latest album, Letter To You, Springsteen is offering some hope in an otherwise miserable year for fans.
“The Boss” spoke about his work to Britain's The Mirror, and explained, “I try to insert something that can, in certain moments, address your inner life by revealing my own. To be a spiritual songwriter means you are primarily addressing the soul of your listeners. I would say I am a good storyteller and people like stories that connect to your emotional life.”
Springsteen went on to say he wanted his music to live alongside his audience: “I want people to vacuum floors to my music, to diaper their babies to my music.”
