Framed (NEW)

Bruce Springsteen, Framed

Framed

One of the biggest stories in music this year was the release of Bruce Springsteen's latest album, Wrecking Ball. The record debuted at #1 in 15 countries. BBC Music spoke of "masterful execution," and The New York Times said it included "some of Springsteen's most elaborate studio concoctions since Born to Run."

Heck, even Y! Music's own New This Week praised it — somewhat wildly, a habit over there — as "an interesting listen."

With all those kudos flying about, we've been wanting to listen to it, too, but we must've had other stuff to do! This week, though, we're finally getting around to it by featuring "We Take Care Of Our Own," the album's first single.

The video is a bit artsy, starting out in black and white before segueing into color. We mostly see Bruce playing his guitar on a rooftop and various regular-type folks walking around. As visual fodder, it's pretty dull stuff.

But our captions aren't! So feel free to scroll down, laugh out loud, and wonder how we maintain our impossibly high standards week after week.

Then tell everyone that Framed is the best thing ever and well worth the 36 seconds it takes to read!
