Bruce Springsteen will appear on “CBS Sunday Morning,” April 30.

In conjunction with the upcoming release of Warren Zanes’ book, “Deliver Me from Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska,” “CBS Sunday Morning” correspondent Jim Axelrod will interview Zanes, and Springsteen himself, in a segment that will be part of the show’s 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (ET) April 30 broadcast. (APRIL 30 UPDATE: The segment aired this morning and I have embedded, below.)

The cover of Warren Zanes’ book, “Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.”

“If I had to pick out one album and say, ‘This is going to represent you 50 years from now,’ ” Springsteen tells Axelrod, “I’d pick Nebraska.”

“Deliver Me from Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska” will be released on May 2. Look for an in-depth interview with Montclair resident Zanes — who interviewed Springsteen and many others for the book, and went with Springsteen to the Colts Neck farmhouse where the 1982 album was recorded — on NJArts.net on May 1.

Axelrod visits the farmhouse with Springsteen and Zanes, too, and Springsteen talks about how even though he had been successful in his career at the time in his life when he recorded Nebraska, he was looking for a greater meaning.

“I think in your 20s, a lot of things work for you,” he says. “But in your 30s, your 30s is where you be — where you start to become an adult. And suddenly I looked around and said, ‘Where is everything? Where is my home? Where is my partner? Where are the sons and daughters that I thought I might have someday?’ … I realized none of those things are there, none of them. … So I said, ‘OK, the first thing I’ve gotta do as soon as I get home is remind myself of who I am and where I came from … and what I want to do … And where I’m going.’ ”

The first leg of Springsteen’s current tour with the E Street Band ended with an April 14 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark. The second leg begins with shows at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in Barcelona, April 28 and 30.
