New Springsteen ep American Beauty

You may have been lucky enough to snatch one on RSD 2014 (or pay over the odds on eBay). No matter - this is worth the price of admission for Hey Blue Eyes alone. Bruce seems to have been one of the few social commentators on the Bush Jr era and I often wonder why that is. To quote the artist “Hey Blue Eyes” rounds out the EP with one of my darkest political songs. Written during the Bush years, it’s a metaphor for the house of horrors our government’s actions created in the years following the invasion of Iraq. At its center is the repressed sexuality and abuse of power that characterized Abu Ghraib prison. I feel this is a shadow we as a country have yet to emerge"

You can download the ep at iTunes.
