Springsteen’s next album will not have any anti-Trump songs on it.  Here is a taste of Jon Bilstein’s piece at Rolling Stone:

The rocker said he planned to follow his Broadway residency with a new solo record, but noted, “It’s not topical at all – topical writing at the moment doesn’t hold a lot of interest to me. I really got out a lot of what I had to say in that vein on Wrecking Ball. I’m not driven to write any anti-Trump diatribe; that doesn’t feel necessary at the moment.”

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. However, the rocker said he was wary of continuing to channel the current political climate into his music because of the constant coverage and criticism of Trump.
