Letter To You is the brand new studio album from Bruce Springsteen with the E Street Band, a rock album fuelled by the band’s heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound. Springsteen’s 20th studio album was recorded at his home studio in New Jersey, and is his first album including the E Street Band since 2012’s High Hopes and their first performances together since 2016’s The River Tour.
“I love the emotional nature of Letter To You,” says Springsteen. “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, compositions from the 1970s, ‘Janey Needs a Shooter’, ‘If I Was the Priest’, and ‘Song for Orphans’. 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, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig.
Note: the LP is available on grey vinyl, exclusive to record shops.
