“I love the emotional nature of ‘Letter To You’,” he said in a statement.

“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.”

The record, which was produced by Springsteen and Ron Aniello, also features new recordings of three songs that were outtakes from his albums in the 1970s, namely ‘Janey Needs a Shooter’, ‘If I Was The Priest’ and ‘Song for Orphans’.

Reviewing his last album, 2019’s ‘Western Stars‘, NME wrote: “Majestic in its scale, but traditional in its subject matter and narratives, ‘Western Stars’ is a wonderful thing. It perfectly leads into his reunion with the E Street Band, with whom he’ll be heading into the studio to work on album 20 later this year. The Boss rambles on; on this evidence, his next journey will be some trip.”
