The Boss' First New Studio Album with the E Street Band Since 2012's High Hopes Recorded Live in the Studio with No Overdubs; Throwback Rock Album includes 9 New Springsteen Compositions Plus New Recordings of 3 Previously Unreleased '70s Songs
Letter To You is Bruce Springsteen's new studio recording with the E Street Band, and is a rock album fueled by the band's heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound. Recorded at his home studio in New Jersey, Letter To You is The Boss' twentieth studio effort, and his first album with 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 '70s, "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.
