Bruce Springsteen has always been a man of the people, and in the new music video for “We Take Care of Our Own,” his selfless message is given new poignance as the song literally spreads light across the United States — or, at least, New Jersey.
With subtitles appearing to help Boss fans sing along to his latest anthem, Springsteen is seen rocking out in an abandoned warehouse and lamenting the fact that “There ain’t no help, the cavalry stayed home.” Black-and-white images of gritty Americana soon morph into Technicolor, and in the final shot of the video, Springsteen is shown walking amongst the people he’s no doubt inspired.
