Bruce Springsteen Reveals Plans For Album, Tour With E Street Band

Christmas has come a few weeks early for Bruce Springsteen fans, as New Jersey's favorite son has revealed plans for a new album and tour with the E Street Band.

Making the announcement during an interview Tuesday with the Australian TV show "Sunrise," Springsteen said, "We're going to start to make the record relatively soon. I never know how long that's going to take, but when it's finished, we'll start looking at some touring -- perhaps late in the year next year or something. I'm looking forward to that."
