“All right, what can I say”? the Boss tells his band. “The greatest thrill of my life is standing behind that microphone with you guys behind me. Let’s do it.”
Bruce Springsteen is back with a new record — and a new movie. AppleTV+ followed the disc’s recording and will release the vérité-style documentary Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You next week. Watch the first trailer above, and see the key art below.
Letter to You, which streets on October 23 — the same day the docu begins streaming on Apple — is the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s 20th album and his first with the E Street Band since 2014’s High Hopes. The feature-length film captures the sessions and includes final-take performances of 10 originals from the new LP.
It features full performances from the E Street Band — Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons — in-studio footage, unseen archival material and a deeper look into Letter to You from the singer-songwriter himself. Written by Springsteen and directed by his frequent collaborator Thom Zimny, the film is a tribute to the E Street Band, to rock music itself and to the role it has played in Springsteen’s life.
Longtime Springsteen manager and producer Jon Landau and Zimny produced the pic, with Barbara Carr as co-producer.
