Western Stars, the next album by Bruce Springsteen to release on June 14.
Its first single, Hello Sunshine, and the accompanying music video drop at midnight tonight (local time), which is also when album pre-orders begin.
Springsteen's 19th album is said to draw inspiration from the Southern California pop records of the late 60s and early 70s, with the record mainly recorded at his New Jersey home studio, with additional pieces laid down in NY and California.
The album was recorded largely at Springsteen's home studio in Colts Neck, New Jersey, with additional recording in California and NY, his website detailed Thursday.
It's Springsteen's first studio album in five years (the last was 2014's High Hopes) and encompasses "a sweeping range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope", the statement said.
"This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements", says Springsteen. "It's a jewel box of a record".
Like his previous two albums, Ron Aniello produced the album alongside playing bass, keyboard and other instruments. Western Stars was mixed by Tom Elmhirst.
Springsteen's wife and E Street Band member Patti Scialfa provides vocals on four of the new songs, with the album also featuring contributions from artists including Jon Brion, David Sancious, Charlie Giordano and Soozie Tyrell. "He has garnered 20 Grammys, won an Oscar and a Tony, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received a Kennedy Center Honor, and was MusiCares" 2013 Person of the Year.
