Soulman BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Covers Late Soulman BEN E. KING


3 November 2022

Living legend BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN canned a new album of covers celebrating
the Sweet Sounds Of Soul Music. It’s named ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE and
lands on 11 November. Pre-order info here.

Springsteen: “I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray and Scott Walker, among many others. I’ve tried to do justice to them all—and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music. My goal is for the modern audience to experience its beauty and joy, just as I have since I first heard it. I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved making it.”

Here’s Springsteen’s version of Ben E. King‘s (1938-2015) hit
DON’T PLAY THAT SONG AGAIN from 1962.

Glorious performance.

Original version.
