Bruce Springsteen has released a new video from his chart-topping "High Hopes" album, for his cover of the Saints' "Just Like Fire Would."
The straightforward performance clip, shot in a rehearsal or club setting, focuses on Springsteen and longtime E Street Band members Max Weinberg, Nils Lofgren and Springsteen's wife Patti Scialfa, as well as featured guitarist Tom Morello, with glimpses of the other E Street Band members.
Springsteen and company kick off the first leg of an expected world tour on Sunday (January 26), with dates following in Australia and New Zealand. Morello was on board for last year's tour of Australia, too, subbing for Steven Van Zandt, and he tells us that being an E Street Band member is a thrill: "I've always looked at it like we are allies and comrades in arms. The E Street Band has a long, storied history that began on E Street in New Jersey. I am a big fan of the E Street Band's, and when asked to play I consider it a great honor. That's the way I look at it."
The upcoming tour marks the first time Springsteen will offer downloads of his concerts online.
The group has one U.S. show booked so far, on May 3 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, but more are expected to be announced soon.
