Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band today announced the release of a new rock album, Letter To You, due out October 23rd via Columbia Records. The announcement came with the release of a new music video for the album’s title track. Watch and listen to “Letter To You” in the player below.
“I love the emotional nature of Letter To You,” says Springsteen of the new studio album. “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.”
Letter to You features 12 tracks fueled by the E Street Band’s signature sound, all recorded at Springsteen’s home studio in New Jersey. Nine of those tracks are brand new songs recently written by The Boss, and three are new recordings of previously unreleased tunes from the 1970’s: “Janey Needs a Shooter,” “If I Was the Priest,” and “Song for Orphans.”

Also featured on the record are Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons. The album was co-produced by Ron Aniello and Springsteen, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig.
