Bruce Springsteen recently shared a video cover of the soul classic “Don’t Play That Song.”

The cover will be included in his forthcoming collection, Only The Strong Survive. The song was originally sung by Ben E. King and became a hit on both the US R&B and pop charts in 1962.

“Don’t Play That Song” followed Springsteen’s cover of Frank Wilson’s “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)” and the Commodores’ “Nightshift” preview. All of these will be included in the November 11 release of Only The Strong Survive.

Through the help of Producer Ron Aniello, the upcoming set will become Springsteen’s 21st studio album. It will also feature guest vocals by Sam Moore, as well as contributions from The E Street Horns, full string arrangements by Rob Mathes, and backing vocals by Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, Michelle Moore, Curtis King Jr., Dennis Collins, and Fonzi Thornton.

Springsteen is an American singer-songwriter born on September 23, 1949. He became one of the originators of the heartland rock style through his style of music combining mainstream rock music with narrative songs about working-class American life.

Interestingly, the singer was called “The Boss” because he usually acquires the task of collecting his band’s nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates. Stream his new cover below.
