Bruce Springsteen Issues Third Official Live Bootleg Compilation

Out now is Bruce Springsteen's third "greatest hits" collection from his officially sanctioned archival live bootleg series. The new 15-song compilation, The Live Series: Songs Of Hope follows the recent Live Series sets, Songs Of Friendship and Songs Of The Road, and is also the joint product of the Legacy imprint of Springsteen's Sony label and Nugs.net, which produces and distributes the monthly archival sets.

These tracks -- deemed the "cream of the crop" -- are classic performances culled from concerts in 1975, 1977, 1978, 1988, 1996, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016,

Bruce Springsteen admits that the shape of the show is constantly evolving in his mind throughout a tour: "It's always a work in-progress. So I'm laying in bed and I'm going, 'Okay, the other 35 nights, what did I play after 'The Promised Land? Well, what can I do in Belgium that's gonna be different tonight (laughs)?' So, on any given night, I know that these five songs work after this song and still keeps the narrative of what we're talking about intact."
