Bruce Springsteen portrait

Bruce Springsteen has released a cover of The Commodores’ 1985 classic Nightshift. It’s taken from his upcoming album of soul covers Only The Strong Survive, which is released via Columbia on November 11. Nightshift was originally released as a tribute to soul stars Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson, who both passed away in 1984. 

“I wanted to make an album where I just sang,” says Springsteen. “And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray, and Scott Walker, among many others. I’ve tried to do justice to them all – and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music.
