Bruce Springsteen dropped a second single today from his “Only the Strong Survive” album. It’s a moving cover of the Commdores’ 1984 hit, “Nightshift,” which memorialized the deaths that year of Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.
This was the first record by the Commodores after Lionel Richie left the group, and it was big. “Nightshift” was written by the group’s lead singer, Walter Orange, with songwriting team Dennis Lambert and Franne Golde.
Bruce has the spirit in this one, he looks mesmerized. So looking forward to this album November 11th.
