NEW YORK (AP) – Bruce Springsteen will release a new rock album he recorded in his home studio in New Jersey with the E Street Band.
The Boss said on Thursday that the album is called “Letter To You” and that he and the band recorded it in just five days. It will be released on October 23.
“Letter To You” features nine new songs and includes new recordings of three unreleased tracks predating Springsteen’s 1973 debut album, “Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ”. The songs are: “Janey Needs a Shooter”, “If I Was the Priest” And “Song for Orphans”.
Springsteen’s last album was the orchestral pop “Western Stars.” “Letter To You” is Springsteen’s first performance with the E Street Band since The River 2016 tour.
Springsteen is joined on “Letter To You” by Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons. The album was produced by Ron Aniello with Bruce Springsteen.
