Bruce Springsteen announces new album 'Letter To You'

Following on from the release of his highly-praised solo album 'Western Stars' last year, Bruce Springsteen rejoins the E Street Band to announce the details behind his next studio album.

The new full-length 'Letter To You' will become his twentieth LP to date, is being previewed by the record's title-track, and is set to be released on the 23rd October via Columbia Records.

Speaking about the new release, he said, “I love the emotional nature of 'Letter To You' 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' includes nine recently written Springsteen songs as well as new recordings of three of his legendary, but previously unreleased 1970's compositions, 'Janey Needs a Shooter,' 'If I Was the Priest' and 'Song for Orphans.'
