As if fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band weren’t ramped up enough for the release of their new album Letter to You, this Friday, Apple TV+ will be releasing an accompanying documentary about their history and the making of the full length.
Directed, produced, and edited by Thom Zimny, who’s worked with Springsteen on a number of projects over the last two decades, the offering will feature behind-the-scenes footage of the band performing together over the years, including video of the recording sessions from the new project. The below teaser clip includes interviews with band members about their longstanding work with the New Jersey native.
What will be the 20th LP of Springsteen’s career, the 12-track album will include nine newly-written songs and new recordings of three previously unreleased songs from the 1970s. Two of the collection’s songs, “Letter to You” and “Ghosts,” have already been released as singles.
Letter To You is Bruce’s first album to feature the legendary E Street Band since 2014’s High Hopes. “I love the emotional nature of Letter To You,” The Boss said of the new offering. “And I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had.”
