After spending most of 2018 stripping down his live show to little more than his voice, his guitar and the stories of his life, Bruce Springsteen is leaving Broadway behind and getting back to the studio and the road.

In a new interview with the U.K.'s Sunday Times Magazine, the rocker discussed politics -- specifically his disapproval and concerns regarding Donald Trump's presidency as he did in his recent Esquire cover story. He also revealed that he has touring and recording plans in store for the near future, and that fans will be able to see him hit the road with the E Street Band soon.

He joked to the Sunday Times that he'll be "back to his day job" soon, and that new material will likely make its way to his set list. He confirmed that he's been working on new music, but that it's closer to Springsteen on Broadway in approach and aesthetic than his typical studio albums.

“For lack of a better word, it’s a singer-songwriter album," he said of the upcoming release, his first since 2014's High Hopes. "More of a solo record.”

For those who didn't have the chance to catch the Boss in person for Springsteen on Broadway, the film of the production will see a second life on Netflix starting Dec. 14.
