Bruce Springsteen has released a cover of the Commodores’ 1985 hit ‘Nighshift’. It serves as the second single from his new soul covers album Only the Strong Survive, which was announced with a rendition of Frank Wilson’s ‘Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)’. Check out Springsteen’s take on ‘Nightshift’ below.
“An essential song selection in the early creation of Only The Strong Survive, the track inspired Springsteen, his producer Ron Aniello and engineer Rob Lebret to christen themselves ‘The Night Shift’ while finishing this new record,” a press release explains. “‘Nightshift’ was first recorded by The Commodores on Motown Records in 1985, serving as a tribute to late soul music heroes Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson just after they passed.”
