Bruce Springsteen has shared a performance of his track ‘Reason To Believe’, recorded at a show in Stockholm in 2005.
The recording comes from Springsteen’s solo acoustic tour ‘Devils And Dust’, and has been shared as part of an ongoing series of archive performances he’s sharing as downloads online. You can take a listen below.
‘Reason To Believe’ originally appeared as the closing track on Springsteen’s acclaimed sixth album ‘Nebraska’, released in 1985 . The Stockholm performance sees him performing into a bullet microphone to distort his vocals.
Just before the lockdown, rock legend Bruce Springsteen couldn’t resist a bit of window shopping at Heroes Motors on trendy Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood on Wednesday.
The store specializes in restoring and selling classic motorbikes.
The 69-year-old was seen checking out a vintage blue motorcycle with a sidecar while he was there and chatting to one of the assistants.
And Bruce snagged a couple of T-shirts before leaving.
The Born To Run rocker looked relaxed in a grey T-shirt, well-worn jeans and sneakers with a cap over his head.
The Boss has owned a number of bikes over the years including Harley-Davidsons, a Triumph Bonneville, a Moto Guzzi and a Yamaha.
Bruce’s Moto Guzzi was custom made by singer Billy Joel’s motorcycle shop, 20th Century Cycles.
It famously broke down in New Jersey in November 2016 and he was rescued by a group of bikers out on a run.
Meanwhile Western Stars, the Bruce Springsteen documentary that also acts as the directorial debut for the singer, has been acquired by Warner Bros.
The studio will release the film in theaters this fall, following its world premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.
The documentary, which was co-directed by Thom Zimny, features archival footage and personal narration, as well as Springsteen performing all 13 songs on Western Stars, his first studio album in five years and on which he is backed by a band and a full orchestra in his historic nearly 100-year-old barn.
Springsteen reportedly posed for photos, but didn’t take questions. He let his music do all the talking in the theater, where he jammed on a handful of classics including “Sherry Darling.”
Asked whether the movie would come out within the calendar year, Springsteen confirmed, then added: “Oh, I’m on the air!”, apparently unaware that that had been the case.
