Bruce Springsteen has announced a new album with the E Street Band.

'Letter To You' is due to arrive on October 23 through Columbia Records and is Springsteen's 20th studio album. It was recorded live at his home studio in New Jersey in just five days. He explained:

“I love the emotional nature of 'Letter To You'. 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 follow-up to 2019's 'Western Stars' features nine new tracks and three new recordings of previously unreleased songs from the 1970s: Janey Needs a Shooter, If I Was the Priest and Song for Orphans. It sees Springsteen joined by Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons.

The album marks Springsteen's first performance with the E Street Band since The River Tour in 2016. It was produced by Ron Aniello with Springsteen, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig.
