Double LP companion album to Springsteen's autobiography!
Career-spanning compilation includes five previously unreleased tracks!
Bruce Springsteen turns 67 on September 23, but it's his fans who will be getting a big present for 2016: the release of his 500-page autobiography coupled with a new album.
The book — titled "Born to Run" — is set to arrive Sept. 27, four days before the release of its 18-track musical companion piece, Chapter and Verse. The record features five previously unreleased songs that reflect the themes and sections of the book. The compilation kicks off with two tracks from The Boss' high school band, The Castiles, featuring a teenaged Springsteen on guitar and vocals, and winds all the way through to 2012's "Wrecking Ball."
The collected songs trace Springsteen's musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book.
It will also feature recordings from the Steel Mill and Bruce Springsteen Band, featuring musicians who went on to perform in the E Street Band, as well as solo demos of "Henry Boy" and "Growin' Up" that were recorded in 1972, just before Springsteen began work on his debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.
"Baby I," from The Castiles, was recorded May 2, 1966, at Mr. Music, Bricktown, N.J. The song was written by Bruce Springsteen and George Theiss and has not been previously released.
"You Can't Judge A Book By the Cover," also from The Castiles, was recorded September 16, 1967 at The Left Foot, Freehold, NJ. Written by Willie Dixon, the recording was previously unreleased.
Also previously unreleased are "He's Guilty (The Judge Song)," recorded Feb. 22, 1970 at Pacific Recording Studio, San Mateo, CA; "Ballad of Jesse James," recorded March 14, 1972 at Challenger Eastern Surfboards, Highland, NJ; and "Henry Boy," recorded June 1972 at Mediasound Studios, New York, NY.
