The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University will release a conversation between Stevie Van Zandt and celebrated music journalist Bob Santelli on Thursday, June 24 at 10 a.m. on Soundstage. Van Zandt will discusses his new album, “Summer of Sorcery Live! At The Beacon Theatre,” recorded with the Disciples of Soul, which is set for release on July 9 and is currently available for pre-order.
“The songs, the sound, and the undeniable passion that Stevie Van Zandt has for rock ‘n’ soul make his latest album a most welcome addition to his impressive body of work,” said Santelli. “Listening to it makes you wonder why it took this long for Van Zandt to release a live album.”
Soundstage, a monthly online series presented by the Springsteen Archives explores new works, trends, and contemporary issues in American music. The series can be accessed via the Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music website or via the Springsteen Archives’ Facebook page. Previous artists appearing on Soundstage include Nils Lofgren, David Sancious, Garry Tallent with the Delevantes, and Arlo Guthrie.
In addition to playing guitar in the E Street Band and leading his own band, Van Zandt runs Renegade Nation, a music and entertainment company; oversees the Rock & Roll Forever Foundation, an organization dedicated to bringing rock & roll history to the American classroom; is the creative force behind the Sirius Radio program, “Little Steven’s Underground Garage;” and heads Wicked Cool, an independent record company.
The multi-talented Van Zandt also has a new book, “Unrequited Infatuations: A Memoir,” which will be released in late September.
