Springsteen was working on Human Touchwhich he intended to release sometime inbut the project took him longer than he thought.
He shelved the project in early and came back to it in September of the same year.

Once he completed Lucky Townhe decided to release both albums at the same time.

Human Touch consisted of mostly love songs, while Lucky Town focuses on more specific events in Springsteen's life. When he went to buy it, the clerk told him it was a picture of a "local hero. The song was inspired by the Gulf War. Upon release the album received generally positive reviews.
