After teasing us last week with a teaser, tonight Apple TV has released the full Trailer for Bruce Springsteen‘s Letter To You Documentary. The film is all about the making of Letter To You , The Boss upcoming album and first album in twenty years since his last album with E Street Band. It’s a tribute to his band, his music and the role that’s played in his life and sharing his thoughts on the the upcoming album.
Fascinating stuff especially if your a fan of Springsteen’s music…
“Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You” 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. Written by Springsteen and directed by his frequent collaborator Thom Zimny (“Western Stars,” “The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash,” “Springsteen on Broadway”), 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.
“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.” Both the album and companion documentary include recently-written Springsteen songs side-by-side with legendary but previously unreleased compositions from the 1970s. Throughout the documentary, Springsteen shares his thoughts and feelings behind “Letter To You” and puts the new music into the context of his entire body of work. In that way, it’s the next piece in the autobiographical series that began with the memoir Born to Run, continued with “Springsteen on Broadway” and advanced through his film “Western Stars.”
Bruce Springsteen Letter To You Documentary will be released on Apple TV+ from 23rd October. Which is also the same day the album is released, available from Apple Music and all good music stockists.
