    Here's a link to the single:

    Bruce Springsteen shares new single “Hello Sunshine”: Stream

    It's interesting. Full disclosure: I'm an old fan who thinks just about everything he's recorded for the past 30 years has been pretty bad.

    Western Bruce kind of feels a little like a tourist dabbling in someone else's style... but I like the vibe of this. I'm far more curious to hear this album than anything he's done in decades.

    That looks pretty good... but Jesus, I feel like I just watched the whole movie. Like, I could write a plot synopsis that would be dead-on.

    On first listen, as a full-fledged Springsteen hack, I thought the single was fine. Just fine.
    But I found myself listening again. And then again. What happened, I think, is when I think about how open he's been with recalling his recent bouts with depression, the song really lands with me.

    [Verse 1]
    Had enough of heartbreak and pain
    I had a little sweet spot for the rain
    For the rain and skies of grey
    Hello sunshine, won't you stay?

    [Verse 2]
    You know I always liked my walking shoes
    But you can get a little too fond of the blues
    You walk too far, you walk away
    Hello sunshine, won't you stay?

    [Verse 3]
    You know I always loved a lonely town
    Those empty streets, no one around
    You fall in love with lonely, you end up that way
    Hello sunshine, won't you stay?

    [Verse 4]
    You know I always liked that empty road
    No place to be and miles to go
    But miles to go is miles away
    Hello sunshine, won't you stay?

    I think the road has been traveled before and better. Valentine’s Day and Better Days are just a couple off of the top of my head.
