On 'Wrecking Ball'

On Springsteen’s new album, Wrecking Ball, his characters aren’t looking for escape – they just want a job. With fiercely populist tunes like “Death to My Hometown” and “Shackled and Drawn,” Springsteen paints a picture of an America where “the banker man grows fat/Working man grows thin.” As he tells Stewart, Springsteen wanted the new songs to address “what happened to the social fabric of the world that we’re living in.”
