How long have you been working on this new solo album?
It was the record I started before [2012’s] Wrecking Ball. I’ve been making it for a long time. I went back to it after [2014’s] High Hopes. I finished it at the beginning of the summer [last year].

When do you plan on putting it out?
I don’t know. I’m just sitting on it right now. I want to play with the band a bit, enjoy that. The next opening I have, we’ll slot it in and get it out. It’s unusual to have a record that you’re sitting on.

Are you writing for the E Street Band now?
No. I just finished that batch of material [on the new album]. At the moment, I’m on writing hiatus.

Springsteen is currently in the middle of The River 2016 tour, which is currently slated to run through April along with a date in May and two dates in Italy in July.
