Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Bruce Springsteen: Wrecking Ball, the album-matching guitar folio to the singer-songwriter’s latest studio album, arranged in both standard music notation and TAB.

Bruce Springsteen: Wrecking Ball guitar TAB songbook captures the album’s statement on modern American life with Springsteen’s well-known fusion of rock and folk sound. The book’s authentic transcriptions include the singles “We Take Care of Our Own,” “Rocky Ground,” and “Death to My Hometown.” Several pages of artwork and all song lyrics are also included. In its 5–Star review, Rolling Stone Magazine described the album as “the most despairing, confrontational and musically turbulent album Bruce Springsteen has ever made.”

Bruce Springsteen’s most recent album, Wrecking Ball, debuted at No. 1 in the US, UK, and in 14 other countries. The critically acclaimed album is Springsteen's tenth No. 1 album in the United States. He is tied with Elvis Presley for third-most No. 1 albums of all-time. In his mini-documentary, also titled Wrecking Ball, Springsteen discusses the origin of and emotion behind the album’s songs. He has won numerous awards over the length of his illustrious career, including 20 Grammy® Awards, two Golden Globes, and an Academy Award. Springsteen will be honored as the 2013 MusiCares®Person of the Year,” a prestigious accolade that is awarded annually by The Recording Academy to philanthropic icons in the music industry.
