Bruce Springsteen has announced a brand new studio album with the E Street Band called 'Letter To You'.

Due for release this 23rd October via Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment NZ, the album is now available for pre order.

Watch the music video to the title track below.

Featuring twelve tracks, the new album marks the Boss' 20th studio album. Recorded at his home studio in New Jersey, Springsteen says he loves the "emotional nature" of 'Letter to You'. "And I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way we’ve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had."

Out of the twelve tracks, nine were recently written by Springsteen and three new previously-unreleased recordings from the '70s titled 'Janey Needs a Shooter', 'If I Was the Priest', and Songs for Orphans'.
