Bruce shares final preview of new album with “Don’t Play That Song”
Bruce Springsteen has unveiled “Don’t Play That Song” today, the final advance preview of his 21st studio album Only The Strong Survive out November 11 on Columbia Records. Behind a rich arrangement featuring strings, backing vocals and The E Street Horns, Springsteen offers a potent rendition of the chart-topper penned by Ahmet Ertegun and Betty Nelson, notably recorded by Ben E. King in 1962 and Aretha Franklin in 1970. With the release of “Don’t Play That Song” an accompanying Thom Zimny-directed visual also arrives today, featuring a lively performance from Springsteen backed by a robust, extensive live band.
