Several emojis have become commonplace on social media throughout the years, but this emoji might just be the boss of all emojis.
Twitter recently rolled out a brand new emoji whenever a user uses the hashtag #Springsteen to pay homage to The Boss. Alongside the hashtag is an iconic image of Bruce Springsteen and his electric guitar with his right arm raised high to the sky.
The emoji is likely in promotion of Springsteen’s upcoming album Letter to You that is scheduled to be released on October 23. The album marks his first new studio record with the E Street Band since High Hopes in 2014.
The Boss broke the news of his new record in late September when he shared a music video of the title track. He described the record as “A rock album fueled by the band’s heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound.”
“I love the emotional nature of ‘Letter To You,’” he added.
The album marks a return to form for Springsteen and the E Street Band and The Boss couldn’t help but share his excitement.
“I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had,” he said.
Letter to You comes in at 12 tracks with nine of the songs being brand new. Three tracks on the record were previously unreleased 1970’s songs: “Janey Needs a Shooter,” “If I Was the Priest” and “Song for Orphans.”
