Bruce Springsteen Shares ‘Ghosts’ Single
Bruce Springsteen previewed his upcoming Letter To You album by unveiling its second single, “Ghosts,” as well as an accompanying video for the track. Letter To You, which Springsteen recorded with the E Street Band, is set for release through Columbia Records on October 23.
The 12-track LP was recorded by The Boss and his longtime backing band during sessions held last November at Springsteen’s home studio in New Jersey. Letter To You features material written specificially for the follow-up to Bruce’s 2019 solo album, Western Stars, as well as a trio of previously unreleased compositions from the 1970s — “Janey Needs A Shooter,” “If I Was The Priest” and “Song For Orphans.” Springsteen co-produced the album with Ron Aniello.
“‘Ghosts’ is about the beauty and joy of being in a band, and the pain of losing one another to illness and time,” explained Springsteen in a statement. “‘Ghosts’ tries to speak to the spirit of the music itself, something none of us owns but can only discover and share together. In the E Street Band, it resides in our collective soul, powered by the heart.”
Bruce tapped Thom Zimmy to direct the “Ghosts” video, which features footage shot during the recording sessions mixed with career-spanning concert footage. Watch the video for “Ghosts” below:
