Listen to Bruce Springsteen's previously unreleased track, 'I'll Stand By You' below.

The ballad was written for Harry Potter but ultimately was rejected from the franchise. Springsteen described it as "pretty good" in a 2016 interview. He hopes the song would be featured in a children's movie.

Three years later, the song is released as part of the soundtrack to a Bruce-Springsteen-inspired film, 'Blinded by the Light'. The soundtrack album also features many live recordings of 'The Promised Land', 'The River', and 'Thunder Road'.

'Blinded by the Light' hits NZ screens this 22nd August.
