Rock star Bruce Springsteens "Western Stars", his first new studio album in five years, will be out on June 14.
The album was recorded primarily at Springsteen's home studio in New Jersey, with additional recording in California and New York.
Columbia Records will release Springsteen's 19th studio album.
"This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements. It's a jewel box of a record," Springsteen said in a statement.
The 13 tracks of "Western Stars" encompass a range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community and the permanence of home and hope.
