Bruce Springsteen's manager Jon Landau has spoken about the songwriter's 17th studio album, which is set for release later this year.

The album, which follows 2009's 'Working On A Dream' and 2010's outtakes collecton 'The Promise', is, according to Landau a "big picture piece of work". In an interview with Rolling Stone, Landau said: "It's a rock record that combines elements of both Bruce's classic sound and his Seeger Sessions experience, with new textures and styles."

Produced by Ron Aniello, the album also features an appearance from Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello - pictured below. "It was an experimental effort with a new producer," says Landau. "Bruce and Ron used a wide variety of players to create something that both rocks and is very fresh."

Landau has also said the album, which has not yet been named or a release date announced, has "social overtones" and a "very pronounced spiritual dimension".

Springsteen is scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas on March 15, fuelling speculation that an album may coincide with the appearance.

Springsteen and The E Street Band, who lost saxophone player Clarence Clemons last year, have announced a round of UK tour dates for June and July.

They will play:

Sunderland Stadium of Light (June 21)
Manchester Etihad Stadium (22)
Isle Of Wight Festival (24)
London Hard Rock Calling (July 14)
