Bruce Springsteen Recorded Saints Song In Sydney

Bruce Springsteen recorded two songs from his next album including the cover of The Saints ‘Just Like Fire Would’ when he was last in Sydney.

Springsteen paid a compliment to Saints singer Chris Bailey saying it is “a song from one of my favorite early Australian punk bands.”

During the Australian leg of the 2013 tour, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band recorded at Sydney famed 301 studio, where David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Bob Dylan, Prince and Elton John have all recorded during their tours.

“I was working on a record of some of our best unreleased material from the past decade when Tom Morello (sitting in for Steve during the Australian leg of our tour) suggested we ought to add “High Hopes” to our live set,” Bruce said. “I had cut “High Hopes,” a song by Tim Scott McConnell of the LA based Havalinas, in the 90’s. We worked it up in our Aussie rehearsals and Tom then proceeded to burn the house down with it. We re-cut it mid tour at Studios 301 in Sydney along with “Just Like Fire Would,” a song from one of my favorite early Australian punk bands, The Saints (check out “I’m Stranded”). Tom and his guitar became my muse, pushing the rest of this project to another level. Thanks for the inspiration Tom”.

‘High Hopes’ will be released through Sony in January, 2014.
