Ugh. Skipped the live stream to listen on the WSJ instead and it's no where to be seen. Maybe it's coming at 1pm? Makes more sense it would debut after the radio debut.

Suprised by this song. I know Brian has said some of these songs will rock but I still wasn't prepared.

Initial thoughts: love the instrumentation (especially the keys); not Gaslight-soundnig at all (that's a compliment not a criticism); this song will kill live.

Need the WSJ stream to come up soon but I did listen to the live stream. Really interesting direction, need a few more listen to catch the lyrics but they sounded pretty good. I'm always the last person to make this comparison, but I guarantee when everyone hears this it will be a consensus that this is, sonically, one of the most Springsteen sounding things he has done. Kind of reminded me of Magic era Bruce maybe.

Pretty interesting song. I like the lyrics and the meaning. I knew Brian said it wasn't going to be an acoustic folk record, but it still surprised me when I heard a big band sound. I was going to record it with my phone, but I am sure someone copied it professionally and will be up sometime soon.

First time I've seen a release date for the record (March 11th). Was that known before? Was kinda hoping for something sooner. Hopefully we'll get another single before then.

Doesn't it seem like January 19th is a more correct date? That is the date of the album release show at Webster Hall, right?

How weird to start a tour without the record out?

Great song. Different than Gaslight to me. Has an unexpected happy vibe.

Really like that this is a relatively positive song. Just what I needed right now. From the album title and 'Low Love' I was expecting something really depressing.

Did anyone else notice that the wsj site initially listed march dates, including one in Irving plaza in NY and another at starland ballroom in nj? They are now gone from the page.

That's the one. When I refreshed the page, the march dates were gone.

Sounds great! I'm so excited to hear the full album. Hope the march release date isn't the right one!

His twitter bio says "Debut Album Painkillers due March 2016!"

Also, does anybody know if it's accurate saying that there's a show in Alexandria? That would be killer.

The radio interview also states that it's out in march, from Brian's own mouth. That is gonna be a loooooong wait.
