Rock icon Bruce Springsteen has revealed that he is prepping a box set of five previously unreleased albums, which were mainly recorded during the '90s.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Springsteen said that the collection would feature songs from the post-1988 period.
"I have a box set of five unreleased albums that are basically post-1988. People have always wondered…People look at my work in the Nineties and they go, 'The Nineties wasn't a great decade for Bruce. He was kind of doing this and he wasn't in the E Street Band," he said. "I actually made a lot of music during that period of time. I actually made albums. For one reason or another, the timing wasn't right or whatever, I didn't put them out."
"They've kind of gathered. I spent time over one of the past winters completely cleaning out the vault. I have a series of Tracks albums that eventually we'll release," he added. "Some of it is older stuff that the band plays on, and some of it is newer stuff where I was conceptualizing during that period of time. It'll give people a chance to reassess what I was doing during that time period. Also, a lot of the stuff is really weird. There's going to be people that really…I can't wait to see the response to some of it."
Springsteen also confirmed that one of his unheard albums is entirely based on drum looping.
"That's going to be as weird as people think it's going to be," he said. "But it uses all drum loops and things like that, and it uses synthesizers. I like the record myself. But the first thing we're putting out is a series of albums. It's going to be so interesting to see the fan response because I love them all."
He said that he can't give a release date, but his fans can expect it to drop in "the near future."
