For decades, Bruce Springsteen has entertained fans around the world with his authentic, heart-on-sleeve music, and on September 27 he’ll tell his story in his own words.
That’s the day Simon & Schuster will release Born to Run, the Boss’ official autobiography that he’s apparently been working on ‘in private’ since 2009, after he and the E. Street Band performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Pre-orders are up now for the book — click here.
From the press release:
In Born to Run, Mr. Springsteen describes growing up in Freehold, New Jersey amid the “poetry, danger, and darkness” that fueled his imagination. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized.
“Writing about yourself is a funny business,” Mr. Springsteen notes in his book. “But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.”
In addition to the book, Springsteen will also release Chapter & Verse, an 18-track collection of material spanning his entire career:
