New Bruce Soundtrack Album out October 25th. Wester Stars - Songs From The Film


Recommended Posts

‘Western Stars – Songs From The Film’ pulls the audio from the film co-directed by Bruce Springsteen and longtime collaborator Thom Zimny. Springsteen and Ron Aniello produced the soundtrack, and its audio was mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig, the same legendary duo behind ‘Springsteen on Broadway.’ Pre-orders for the album begin Friday, September 27.

 

 

The ‘Western Stars’ film is a cinematic retelling of Springsteen’s first studio album in five years, as he plays the album backed by a band and full orchestra at Stone Hill Farm in Colts Neck, NJ. The film premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and is written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, with special guest Patti Scialfa. Zimny, Jon Landau, Barbara Carr, and George Travis produced the film, with Springsteen serving as executive producer. The original score is by Springsteen.

 

 

The ‘Western Stars’ album has become a global success by nearly every measure, reaching #1 on charts in every continent on earth and hailed by critics as some of the finest music of his career. The album also placed Springsteen alongside David Bowie and the Rolling Stones one of the Top 5 acts with the most #1 UK albums.

Love the album, but will the live versions differ greatly, and will it be broken up by spoken interludes? I'll still buy it regardless. Is the film being released, or just the audio?

I suppose the difference will be it'll be sung in his "now" voice as opposed to the album that's more than a few years old. What do ya think?

If it’s in arenas with a strings section and a set list staple of NYC Serenade then I’d take that all day long.
