John Mellencamp recently shared “Wasted Days,” a duet with Bruce Springsteen. The song is the first single from Mellencamp’s upcoming 25th studio album, due to arrive next year.
The song, with musical arrangement, featuring several instruments, sees Mellencamp and Springsteen go on a nostalgic trip, taking turns with lead vocal duties.
“How many days are lost in vain / Who’s counting down these last remaining years? / How many minutes do we have left?” they wonder at one point.
“Wasted days, Wasted days / We watch our lives just fade away to more wasted days,” the legendary musicians sing in the chorus.
Rumors of Mellencamp and Springsteen working together were doing the rounds for several months. Mellencamp officially confirmed the collaboration in May.
“Bruce is singing on the new record and is playing guitar,” he told Billboard during Clive Davis‘ virtual 2021 Grammy gala.
