Wrecking Ball

Marking his 17th studio album, Wrecking Ball features 11 new Springsteen recordings and was produced by Ron Aniello with Bruce Springsteen and executive producer Jon Landau. Said long-time manager Landau, “Bruce has dug down as deep as he can to come up with this vision of modern life. The lyrics tell a story you can’t hear anywhere else, and the music is his most innovative of recent years. The writing is some of the best of his career, and both veteran fans and those who are new to Bruce will find much to love on Wrecking Ball.”

The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town

This single-disc release of the Thom Zimny-directed documentary The Promise breaks his story of the Darkness album sessions out of the larger box set. Zimny’s Songs from the Promise is a major bonus feature: five songs from the E Street Band’s 2010 Carousel House show in Asbury Park, which was Clarence Clemons’ last appearance with the band.

Darkness on the Edge of Town (Remastered)

If Born to Run was epic cinema, Darkness was brutal reality, its characters not dreaming of idealized escape as much as struggling against their circumstances. This long-awaited remaster of Springsteen’s 1978 album, overseen by Bob Ludwig in 2010, is one of three CDs in the box set The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story.

Released: November 16, 2010

The Promise

Previously unreleased tracks from the 1977-’78 recording sessions include long-missed studio versions of such live standards as “Because the Night,” “Fire,” and Springsteen’s most celebrated outtake, “The Promise.” Finished in some cases with modern vocals and additional instrumentation, they form a “lost album” between Born to Run and Darkness.

The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story

Three years elapsed between Born to Run and Darkness, and they were astonishingly prolific. This six-disc box set contains the remastered CD and 22 additional tracks, a ’78 concert DVD, a feature-length documentary, and a newly filmed E Street Band performance of the album, illuminating one of Springsteen’s most richly rewarding periods.

Released: November 16, 2010
