Bruce Springsteen has released “Nightshift” from his upcoming album Only The Strong Survive, a collection of fifteen soul music greats out November 11 on Columbia Records. An essential song selection in the early creation of Only The Strong Survive, the track inspired Springsteen, his producer Ron Aniello and engineer Rob Lebret to christen themselves “The Nightshift” while finishing this new record. “Nightshift” was first recorded by The Commodores on Motown Records in 1985, serving as a tribute to late soul music heroes Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson just after they passed.
