Bruce Springsteen releases new single, “Hello Sunshine”

His new album, ‘Western Stars,’ arrives in June.

Bruce Springsteen has released “Hello Sunshine,” the lead single from his upcoming album, Western Stars.

The iconic singer-songwriter croons over a soundscape of strummed acoustic guitar, wistful pedal steel and a swooning string arrangement on the world-weary song. “Had enough of heartbreak and pain / I had a little sweet spot for the rain / For the rain and skies of gray / Hello sunshine, won’t you stay,” he sings.

“This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements,” Springsteen said in a press statement. “It’s a jewel box of a record.”
