Bruce Springsteen officially announced today that his new album, “Wrecking Ball,” would hit shelves on March 6. Rumors had hinted that this would be his angriest album and that he would be addressing the current recession and the economic travails of middle- and lower-class America. If the first single, “We Take Care of Our Own,” is any indication, this will be to Occupy Wall Street what “The Rising” was to 9/11: the moment when Springsteen takes up a cause and makes sense of an event that has stymied other musicians.

He's part of the 1%. But it's okay to listen to him?

Some people can actually listen to someone without absorbing their position hook line and sinker. It takes practice.

I look forward to this. He has always shared a clarity of truth.

I don't know him. I just think it is interesting that for a guy who hasn't been very political and who I would have guessed was a Republican. It is of minor significance because most people don't pick their politics based on rock stars. No, wait. Maybe they do pick their politics based on rock starts. Hey, that could explain a lot.

Well, if it turns out to be significant you may have heard it here first, unless you saw it on the blog I copied it from.
