Bruce Springsteen Joins the Gaslight Anthem on New Single ‘History Books’

    The Gaslight Anthem have announced their sixth album and first in nine years: History Books arrives October 27 on Rich Mahogany Recordings via Thirty Tigers. Bruce Springsteen joins them on the title track, which is out today. Check it out below.

    “When Bruce Springsteen said I should write a duet for us, I think my head exploded,” frontman Brian Fallon said in a statement. “It will never get old to me that one of the greatest songwriters in the world, and one of my hero’s voices, will forever be captured in a song I wrote at a small wooden desk, in October, in New Jersey.”

    The Gaslight Anthem announced they were going on hiatus in 2015 after touring in support of their last album, Get Hurt. “When you have a band reach any level of success or popularity, that’s a gift,” Fallon commented. “It’s truly a miracle to be able to do your art for a living. Having the band come this far and be able to still find inspiration and connection in our music is a treasure. We’re thrilled to be back, and we thank our fans for allowing us time to regroup.”

    “None of us wanted to make a very somber or serious record showing how much we’ve matured,” Fallon added. “We’ve all changed and grown and learned so much, but the overall mood was a feeling of excitement to be back together and making music that means something to us.”
