Bruce Springsteen-More Hits
Bruce Springsteen has another hits collection.
Unfortunately, there are no plans to release it in the U.S., although a few lucky Americans already have it. Collection: 1973-2012 was given out to those who attended the MusiCares Person of the Year ceremony, which honored Springsteen last month. Now up to date with tracks from his most recent album, Wrecking Ball, Collection is his fourth best-of, following 1995's Greatest Hits, 2003's The Essential Bruce Springsteen and a different Greatest Hits in 2009. This latest one is being sold in the markets that he'll hit on this year's tour, starting in Australia, where he is now, and Europe in the spring.
Music journalists who cover Springsteen outside of the U.S. usually get more interview access than those here in the States do. Just prior to his Australian tour opener on Thursday in Brisbane, Springsteen sat at the foot of the stage after soundcheck to take a few questions from the local media.
