Listen to a new song from Bruce Springsteen, "You've Got It," from Wrecking Ball - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

 Each weekday until March 2nd you can listen to a new song from Bruce Springsteen’s forthcoming Wrecking Ball. You can listen to “You’ve Got It” until midnight tonight here at the Wall Street Journal Arts & Entertainment blog. Jim Fusilli writes:

For the most part a three-chord blues, “You’ve Got It,” from Bruce Springsteen’s forthcoming album “Wrecking Ball” (Columbia), opens with the familiar puck-chug of his acoustic guitar, a foundation sound that’s served him since his first recordings for Columbia – you can hear it on the demo tapes he made 40 years ago; they were released in ’98 on “Tracks.” Springsteen hasn’t used the acoustic folk-blues form all that often – “State Trooper” on Nebraska comes to mind – but it suits his voice and sense of command: As you’ll hear, his solo statement on the first verse is so complete, it’s a surprise when the piano, pedal steel guitar and tambourine enter after the turnaround. Marc Muller’s soaring pedal steel solo cleaves the track and underscores the vocal when Springsteen returns.
