New Bruce Springsteen album his "angriest" yet, says "earwitness"

Citing an anonymous "earwitness" who has supposedly heard some of the album, The Hollywood Reporter says that the forthcoming record by Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band is "very rock and roll" and "gets into economic justice quite a bit." Which is sort of like saying "it has guitars" and "good lyrics," but, wait, there's more: "He feels it's the angriest album he's ever made," reports the source. "Bear in mind, though, that [Springsteen] wrote and recorded the majority of the album before the Occupy movements started, so he's not just setting headlines to music.”

The not-yet-titled record is produced by Ron Aniello and is said to include “unexpected textures—loops, electronic percussion… an amazing sweep of influences and rhythms, from hip-hop to Irish folk rhythms.” Hm, a 60something classic-rocker playing around with "loops"—that's not often a good thing. Still, the source insists that the record is, of course, "terrific." We remain anxious to hear it.
