Bruce Springsteen album tie-in doc on Apple TV+
October 6, 2020
Bruce Springsteen fans around the world will get a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic artist’s creative process in the documentary feature film, Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You, from Apple Original Films, premiering October 23rd exclusively on Apple TV+.
The feature-length vérité documentary arrives the same day as Springsteen’s new album Letter To You, and features full performances from the E Street Band, in-studio footage, never-before-seen archival material, and a deeper look into the new album.
Letter To You is Springsteen’s first studio album recorded live and together with the E Street Band since 1984’s Born In The USA. Both the album and companion documentary include recently written Springsteen songs side by side with 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.
Apple Original Films’ Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You is produced by Jon Landau and Zimny and co-produced by Barbara Carr, with Springsteen serving as executive producer.
