Bruce Springsteen unveiled his new single, the politically charged "We Take Care of Our Own" today, along with information on his new album, set to be called "Wrecking Ball" and released on March 6.

"Bruce has dug down as deep as he can to come up with this vision of modern life," says Springsteen's manager Jon Landau, who was also an executive producer on the album. "The lyrics tell a story you can't hear anywhere else, and the music is his most innovative in recent years. The writing is some of the best of his career and both veteran fans and those who are new to Bruce will find much to love on 'Wrecking Ball.'"

"Wrecking Ball" is Springsteen's 17th album, the first since the death of his longtime saxophonist Clarence Clemons. He and The E Street Band plan to spend much of the year on tour, though no dates have been announced. Springsteen is set to deliver the keynote address at the South by Southwest Music Conference in March, and many expect the American leg of the tour to start shortly after that.

"We Take Care of Our Own" went on sale on iTunes today.
