Bruce Springsteen’s “song of the day” streaming campaign comes to an end with the last song from the “Wrecking Ball” set: “We Are Alive.” Hear it here…
As the Wrecking Ball listening tour comes to a close, we’re honored to have been chosen to host the stream for We Are Alive, the song that closes out the album.
After being introduced to various characters throughout the first ten songs on the album, We Are Alive introduces us to past victims. To our ears, Bruce seems to be reminding us that many different times and in many different ways, we have been here before — that countless others have also been tripped up in their pursuit of the elusive American Dream.
Yet the ghosts tell us “We Are Alive” — we are not a nation of fatalists — and the Dream lives on. The song isn’t so much closure as it is a beginning…
The stream will be live for just 24 hours, going dark at 11:59 pm EST March 2.
However, fans will be able to stream the entire album starting Monday, March 5 at 12:01 am EST until Tuesday, March 6 at 11:59 pm EST at BruceSpringsteen.net.
The album is released Tuesday, March 6.
And while we’re at it, if you missed the band’s appearance to kick off Bruce Springsteen week on Fallon, make sure you take a look. We’ve mentioned before that the sound quality on Fallon is possibly the best on television, and this performance is just another example.
