Bruce Springsteen’s new album, “Letter to You,” feels like a postcard from a bygone era — one long before texts, FaceTime and Zoom.
Bruce Springsteen’s new album, ‘Letter to You’
Certainly, this is a nostalgia trip back to a more innocent, less scary time with an old friend — and his old friends. That would be the E Street Band, which, after not appearing on last year’s “Western Stars” LP, is back working with the Boss for the first studio album since 2014’s “High Hopes.”

No doubt, this was a family reunion in every sense. Even Clarence Clemons — who passed away in 2011 — is there, in the spirit of his nephew Jake Clemons on sax.
That warm family feeling is a familiar, comforting presence throughout “Letter to You,” which is a sonic tonic for these troubling times. That sense of history and deep-rooted connectivity from having rocked through the ages together extends to George Theiss — Springsteen’s last surviving comrade from his first band, the Castiles — whose 2018 death inspired the new LP.
