Apple's exclusive Springsteen documentary debuted one day early to Apple TV+ ahead of its official October 23 launch date.




Bruce Springsteen fans can rejoice, as "Bruce Springsteen's Letter To You" is now available to watch. The documentary chronicles Springsteen recording "Letter to You" live with the full E Street Band-- including final take performances of 10 originals from the new record.

The documentary also delivers in-studio footage, never-before-seen archival material, and an insider's look at "Letter to You" from Springsteen himself.

Springsteen took to Twitter on Thursday to announce the early release.

Alright, E Streeters enough waiting! @AppleTV, how about we release #LetterToYouFilm a little early?

-- Bruce Springsteen (@springsteen)


"Letter to You" is the twentieth studio album from Springsteen and marks the first time he's recorded with the E Street Band since "High Hopes" in 2014.





"Bruce Springsteen's Letter to You" is written by Springsteen and directed by Thom Zimney ("The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash," "Springsteen on Broadway,") and serves as a tribute to the E Street Band, rock music, and the role it's played in Springsteen's life.

The documentary joins Apple TV+'s growing roster of documentaries, including the critically acclaimed "Beastie Boys Story" and an upcoming The Velvet Underground documentary.

    They probably decided to run it early as Springsteen has an itinerary that shows him departing the USA in the very near future based on recent comments...

    The "Full E-Street Band"?
    ...  But the "Big Man" is gone....   (although his soulful sounds will never die)

    But this does sound like a really interesting look at how the band worked -- the behind the scenes, nuts and bolts.
    I was, unfortunately never a very good musician, but but from 5th grade through most of college I loved making music -- and these behind the scenes looks should bring back some great memories....

    Like all of Springsteen's work, this should be interesting -- to say the least.
