Why is Bruce posting photos of trees in the desert?
Rolling Stone is also trying to figure out what it all means. Here is a taste:
The first image appeared on Bruce Springsteen’s Twitter and Instagram account on Monday April 22nd at 10:03 AM. It appeared to be a Joshua Tree in the the middle of a bright desert. At 8:00 am the next morning another image of a desert tree appeared, though this one was slightly distorted. A third desert photo appeared at 8:06 am this morning, but this time it’s a long road with a horse on the side of it. There haven’t been captions attached to any of the images.
There’s no solid information about what exactly is going on here, but Springsteen has said that he’s working on a new album. “That record is influenced by Southern California pop music of the ’70s,” he told Variety in December. “Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, those kinds of records. I don’t know if people will hear those influences, but that was what I had in my mind. It gave me something to hook an album around; it gave me some inspiration to write.”
