Bruce Springsteen will debut a short film co-directed by Springsteen and longtime collaborator Thom Zimny on Wednesday, July 9 at noon on his official website.
No one knows the content of the film entitled "Hunter of Invisible Game," which is also the title of a song on Springsteen's latest album "High Hopes."
Springsteen has said he wrote down this name of a song many years ago, but never pursued the rest of the song until recently. He just thought it was a great title for a song. Then he began thinking about an apocalyptic scene where the survivors are trying to remain human despite their desperation. They were seeking the spiritual aspect of what being human means. And that's what the song is about.
One has to wonder if that's this film will be about - searching for something intangible in an end of the world scenario.
In other recent news, Springsteen was named the 25th richest celebrity by Forbes magazine. The publication cited the $81 million Springsteen made on his most recent tour which ended in May. Springsteen returned to the Forbes list of the 100 richest celebrities after a four-year absence. Springsteen toured South Africa, Central America, Australia and New Zealand in addition to the United States over the past couple years in support of first his Wrecking Ball album and then the High Hopes album that was released in January.
In recent rumor news, some have said Springsteen has a new album almost ready to release that could easily come out this year. It's said to be a collection of folk and country music in a change of genre for Springsteen. Some have said Springsteen will go back out on tour with just himself; others have said it may be that Springsteen plays solo for the first half of the shows and then the E Street Band joins him for the second half of the show. At least one source reported that Springsteen has said the days of the three and a half hour full band concerts are coming to an end.
