Bruce Springsteen is working on a new solo album without the E Street Band. Despite the expectations of nearly everybody in the known universe, he says it will NOT address the current political climate.

Springsteen says "I'm not driven to write any anti-Trump diatribe, that doesn’t feel necessary at the moment." He says it feels "redundant" to him, and that politics isn't something he's obsessed with right now. 

Bruce continues "I'm ambivalent about getting on a soapbox right now. I still believe people fundamentally come to music to be entertained. Yes, to address their daily concerns, and yes, also to address political topics, I believe music can do that well...but I still believe fundamentally it's an affair of the heart. People want you to go deeper than politics." 

He also says that he never wanted to be JUST a proselytizer for an ideological point of view. Critics of The Boss have long yearned for him to keep to making his tunes, and stay away from political messaging. 

There's no title or release date for the album yet.
