Will the next Bruce Springsteen album include songs about President-elect Donald Trump? Not exactly, said the Boss in a new interview on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
“I haven’t written about it. It takes a while to digest all those things,” he told Maron. “I don’t know if I will ’cause I don’t go, “OK, I need a Trump album. That’s what’s got to come next.’ “
Springsteen said he writes from “inside out,” and if he is inspired by something internally, “I can make a record based on what I can write about at a given moment.”
“Sometimes it ends up being topical. Sometimes it doesn’t,” he said. “But we’ve got a good arsenal of material right now that we can go out and sort of put in service.”
