Former President Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen have launched a new podcast together.

The former Commander in Chief, 59, and the music legend, 71, announced the project, titled “Renegades: Born in the USA,” with Spotify on Monday.

“Though the two have very different backgrounds and careers, they formed a deep friendship. Starting today, listeners can eavesdrop on their personal, intimate conversations in a new podcast: ‘Renegades: Born in the USA,'” a press release obtained by Fox News described. 

“The longtime friends discuss their hometowns and role models, explore modern manhood, and confront the painfully divided state of the country today — and offer a vision of how we can all move forward together,” the release added.

“On the surface, Bruce and I don’t have a lot in common. But over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility. About work, about family and about America. In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much,” he teases.
