Listen below to another new song – “This Depression” – from Bruce Sprinsgteen’s forthcoming album Wrecking Ball out on March 6th. Each day now through March 2nd, a new song from Wrecking Ballwill be streaming on a different website. The songs will be streaming for 24 hours only, beginning midnight ET each day. Bruce rolls in to Philly for two sold out shows at the Wells Fargo Center on March 28th and 29th. Wrecking Ball can be pre-ordered here. “This Depression” is a slow burning, melancholic mid-tempo song highlighted by a gorgeous yet mournful “wall-of-sound” guitar solo that pushes the song over the top.

    Is that Tom Morello playing the guitar solo? 

    • Ericgreenesmug

      yes

    • Erthprairy

      Yeah, and I think his song ended one of the previously released new songs too…

  • Joedrenik

    I know this album is all about anger inspired by tough times, but I can’t help but feel the double meaning here which must have been inspired by the passing of Clarence Clemens. RIP Big Man.

  • Rene

    Not a fan.  Some of these new songs are just too “depressing”  I get he is all about Occupy Wallstreet, the fat Bankers etc….but show me some good time rock and roll bruce will ya!

    • Erthprairy

      yeah…wait til second part of album? AND then the context of the whole concert. It’s this kind of song which adds the ingredients to make it all tense and drama.

      Political Bruce sux!  Old time R/R Boss was great!  He has turned into the world’s biggest hypocrite.  Moaning about the fat cats on Wall Street, sympathizing with the flag-burning Occupy group.  All the while, he’s one of the top 1% in income and has the balls to cheat his beloved state of New Jersey out of precious tax dollars by utilizing a loophole that says his 200 acre estate is a “working farm” because he is growing organic arugula on it.  What a sad old man he’s become while taking all of the beaten/battered masses’ money with his inflated ticket prices.  Retire and eat your arugula along with your socialist, commie friend Dave Marsh.  I’m officially done with your old ass.

        i have been waiting for bandwagon fans like u to jump ship. leaves room for old and new fans to come aboard.  and dah  rocknroll has always been plitical .
          Bruce didn’t invent this only  mastered how to do it.

        Exactly when was the last time you heard straight-up “old time R/R” from Springsteen?  ”Born in the USA” is one of the most politically furious records of the 1980s.  ”Darkness on the Edge of Town” deals with precisely the same themes.  So that means the last Springsteen album you enjoyed was “Born to Run,” 37 years ago.  Thanks for the insight.

      Um…get a Bob Seeger album.  Or record your own.

  • ESR

    Anger yes but with Bruce you cannot help feel the passion and compassion that comes through- it is part of what makes his lyrics so powerful.

  • Mattes_jj

    I hate every song except the first single! Been a fan for 35 years, and this crap almost makes me vomit!

  • oughtta be easy

    to Mattes…jj ,  Think you better go see it LIVE. I don’t know HOW he is going to, but I am certain he’s going to pull it off and it will be UnREAL!

    I couldn’t agree more with beersmypal!!!! I have been on a 32-year journey with Bruce Springsteen, as one of his most devoted fans. I’ve seen him live 17 times since 1980. He always will be my favorite musical artist, bar none. But I finally have jumped off the Bruce bandwagon after 3 decades because I no longer buy his left-wing, socialist BS (that doesn’t stand for Bruce Springsteen, btw). What ever happened to great bar-band rock n’ roll? Who wants to listen to this politicized, proselytizing?! And how about finding a melody once in a while, Bruce? For a longtime disciple like me, it takes a lot for me to express this disdain, but he won’t be getting anymore of my money. He has enough. It just doesn’t ring true, coming from his mansion on the hill. I have enough Woody Guthrie in my collection.

      Once again- what do you imagine was the last NON-political Bruce Springsteen album??  I’m dumbfounded by these kinds of posts, and I, too, have been listening for 32 years.  Beyond that, is he really supposed to abandon his sympathy for wounded, demoralized people because he’s now rich??  Maybe you’d prefer a nice rock & roll number about how much he paid for the fixtures in his new bathroom.  This line of thinking is simply ludicrous.  How much great art with true moral conviction wouldn’t exist today if artists ceased to care because they no longer have to worry about paying the rent?  If you can reach this point about him as a writer – and you’re perfectly within your rights to dislike the new album – then you NEVER had a connection with the guy, regardless of what you were telling yourself.

      I have been a fan for 32 years. I get totally turned off when he’s ranting about his political beliefs. I’m not sure if he realizes that all people that attend his shows work for
      a living and pay top dollar for his shows. And we don’t care that he supports such a loser liberal in the white house. I may not be attending his shows either, I’ve probably put his son Evan through college with all the money I’ve contributed as a fan. I believe he is so passionate against war for he was able to avoid Vietnam after it scared the shit out of him for maybe having to serve. And since has totally supported the democratic liberals. Us conservative fans are disgusted when he has to say that Bush’s presidency was a disaster. Well guess what Bruce, I’m sure you realize that the country was better off before Barrack Hussein.His presidency has been catastrophic. Most intelligent people understand that. And others only hear the lame stream media speaking about how wonderful he is. Last I remember, gas was about 2 bucks a gallon when he entered office.Now it’s pushing 6 dollars.And the 780 billion he wasted on a stimulus. A crack head could have  managed the money better than him. What about the 500 million wasted on Solyndra . The media was camped at every gas station when gas went up so much as a penny when G.W. was in office to point the finger at him for high gas prices were under his watch.Why haven’t they grilled Hussein about the price of gas. Unemployment at 10%. When he promised it would go down after his stimulus. Wake up people. Like Newt says, “It’s a matter of national security to kick him out of office. He provides no leadership. He divides instead of uniting. And has never taken responsibility for any failures. As for Bruce, try to refrain from the political speeches for they truly isolate your fans. What better time to stop attending shows now that Clarence is gone. But it’s alright for I’ll depend on all of my Bruce music and the memories of how it once was to attend a Bruce show.

    I’ve come to expect that every online article will have comments by Bruce haters. I used to think there were lots of Bruce haters out there but now I’m convinced it’s just a small number of sad little people trolling around the net. 
    It’s always the same argument “he’s rich so he’s hypocritical” and “he’s a tax dodger because he gets a tax break for his land”.

  • Brodiejo

    We will always need Bruce’s heart, even in this recession.  Strong, always in tune, and pumping with the vigor of his many fans!  Yes!
