Bruce Springsteen returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday for his second of three consecutive appearances on the late-night talk show this week. Springsteen’s Fallon “take over” resumed last night with a performance of “Turn Back The Hands Of Time.”

“Turn Back The Hands Of Time” was one of 15 soul and R&B songs The Boss covered for his new album, Only The Strong Survive. The Boss released the LP, his 21st studio album, via Columbia Records on November 11.

Springsteen put the focus on his vocal abilities for Only The Strong Survive and showed off his powerful pipes during last night’s performance. Co-written by Jack Daniels and Bonnie Thompson, “Turn Back The Hands Of Time” scored a hit for Tyrone Davis in 1970.

On Monday, the 73-year-old musician kicked off his run on The Tonight Show by serving up Only The Strong Survive’s “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do),” a track originally written and recorded by Frank Wilson. Springsteen also sat for an extended interview. There was no interview segment on Tuesday. Bruce heads back to 30 Rock tonight and will also appear in a special Thanksgiving episode.
