Springsteen’s new album Letter to You is due out on October 23, 2020. Now we learn that a documentary will accompany the release. Springsteen is the gift that keeps on giving!
Here is a taste of Anthony D’Allessandro’s piece at Deadline:
Apple TV+ will stream Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You documentary on Oct. 23, which is the same day that the 20-time Grammy winner’s new album with The E Street Band Letter to You arrives. Letter to You is Springsteen’s first studio album recorded live and together with the E Street Band since 1984’s Born in the U.S.A.
The project is the next piece in Springsteen’s autobiographical series that began with the memoir Born to Run, continued with Springsteen on Broadway and advanced through his film Western Stars. The doc takes a behind-the-scenes look at Springsteen’s creative process with full performances from The E Street Band, in-studio footage, and never-before-seen archival material. Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You also captures Springsteen recording “Letter To You” live with the full E Street Band, and includes final take performances of ten originals from the new record. Both the album and companion documentary include recently-written Springsteen songs side-by-side with legendary but previously unreleased compositions from the 1970s.
