Bruce Springsteen calls Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo "an incredible creation"

Bruce Springsteen calls Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo

In conversation with Variety, Springsteen expressed his admiration of West's ever-changing 2016 release The Life of Pablo, calling it "an incredible creation, especially the arrangements". I admire the modern record-making craft and modern songwriting. "I read a little bit from it, I tell some stories and play some music - that's basically the show".

Springsteen has been a fierce critic of Trump and previously skewered the president on "That's What Makes Us Great", a protest song he released with longtime collaborator Joe Grushecky in April.

Springsteen also notes that because of the venue's size - it has a capacity of 960 - the show will feel "like you're inviting people into your living room, and it's gonna allow for a different type of communication with the audience". I don't know if people will hear those influences, but that was what I had in my mind.

"And my younger son is the classic-rock guy, Bob Marley and Bob Dylan and Creedence - but he got a lot of his music from videogames, from "Call of Duty" and Vietnam videos, and that's where he got turned onto a lot of '60s stuff". But I still believe fundamentally it's an affair of the heart.

Asked why he appeared reluctant to support Hillary Clinton early in the 2016 USA election, Springsteen said: "I thought she would have made an excellent president, and I still feel that way". He pointed to Woody Guthrie as an example of a musician who engaged with the political in his music, but focused on people first.

Bruce Springsteen considers himself to be "too old" to listen to Taylor Swift. "I still aspire to that, really, and if it has political implications that's fine and if it doesn't that's fine too".
