Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt has predicted that the singer’s next release will be a solo album.

Appearing on Philadelphia’s WMGK radio station, Van Zandt told host John DeBella that Springsteen already had a wealth of solo material ready to work on.

“You know Bruce – he’s always got an album in his pocket, he’s always writing something,” he said.

He added: “I don’t know this for a fact, but I expect him to possibly put something out that’s more of a solo nature, before we get back together. Only because he’s just so prolific, still, after all these years. He’s still just a terrific songwriter and writes all the time.”

Springsteen‘s last solo album was 2006’s ‘We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions’, while his last album with the E Street Band was 2009’s ‘Working On A Dream’.

The frontman also features on Dropkick Murphys’ new album ’Going Out In Style’, on the song ‘Peg O’ My Heart’.
