Just after he received this year’s Woody Guthrie Prize, Bruce Springsteen revealed that a new album is coming “soon.”
“We have a record coming out soon that’s set largely in the West,” he said. The record will be a follow-up to last year’s Letter To You and 2019’s Western Stars.
Meanwhile, Springsteen became the eighth recipient of the Woody Guthrie Prize, which annually honors an artist who speaks out for social justice through their works in a way that exemplifies the folk pioneer’s spirit.
Past recipients include Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, John Mellencamp, Mavis Staples, Kris Kristofferson, Chuck D and Norman Lear.
“I’ve always said that Bob Dylan was the father of my country, but [Woody Guthrie] was the grandfather of my country,” Springsteen said as he received the Woody Guthrie Prize.
