(Watch) Bruce Springsteen’s Nostalgia Filled “Ghosts” Gives Max Weinberg’s Drums a Work Out


Here’s the second single from Bruce Springsteen’s “Letter to You.” The track is called “Ghosts” and what’s notable is the hard pounding of Max Weinberg’s drums, and the steel guitar of Nils Lofgren. So far the E Street Band sounds rock heavy this go round and less horn-y. Where’s Jake Clemons? I’m sure he’s on his way.

This single is deceptive. It really builds well. It also ends strangely, with a sudden fade out.
