Bruce Springsteen has rush released a new video for the title track of his new EP, American Beauty. The performance clip, which was directed by "The Boss'" longtime in-house filmmaker Thom Zimny, was shot last Saturday (April 19th) prior to the E Street Band's Charlotte, North Carolina show.
Bruce Springsteen says that 50 years into his performing career, hitting the stage every night never fails to excite and inspire him: "It's like you come out and you fall in love every night in some way. When you're doing it right, it's like a rebirth, y'know? It's not a repetition -- it's a renewal -- so that involves something happening every night for the first time. And, amazingly enough, it's like your first kiss in that there's something in playing. There were thousands of other times, but still when you come out there's some element of the first time that's very, very present. And it keeps you very open and present and it's what people feel."
