It’s been quite a while since their last album and at times I was wondering if their indefinite hiatus would ever end. Well, they got back together a short while ago and now their first new single is out. With a little help from The Boss.
The album will be released at the end of October, I guess there will be one or two more singles from the album until then to bridge us over.
Oh, and to get back to the intro of this post: Many people apparently stop discovering new music after a certain age and only listen to the music from their youth.
