Working on a Dream

At the end of the Magic sessions, Springsteen found himself still writing songs. Encouraged by producer Brendan O’Brien, he recorded during breaks on tour, exploring a classic pop sound for an album release coinciding with Super Bowl XLIII and the inauguration of President Barack Obama. “The Last Carnival” pays tribute to E Street organist Danny Federici, who passed away in 2008.
