Bruce Springsteen Premieres Unreleased Song From The River Box Set

.
(hennemusic) Bruce Springsteen will release a 7-disc box set featuring material recorded for his 1980 double-album, "The River." The rocker is premiering an unreleased outtake, "Meet Me In The City", as a preview of the forthcoming package.

Due December 4, "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection" presents the original record alongside "The River: Single Album" - originally named "The Ties That Bind" - a 10-track album that Springsteen recorded in 1979 as a follow up to 1978's "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" but never released.

"The songs lacked the kind of unity and conceptual intensity I liked my music to have," Springsteen wrote in the lyrics/photo book "Songs." "So we went back in the studio."

The 4CD/3DVD package also delivers 22 outtakes from the sessions - including 11 previously unreleased - an hour-long documentary/interview with Springsteen complete with solo acoustic guitar performances, and a legendary 1980 concert filmed at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.

The box set also presents a hardcover 148-page coffee table book containing 200 studio and live photographs plus pages from Springsteen's notebooks, single covers, images and outtakes from the original album package, and other memorabilia documenting the album.

"The River" delivered Springsteen his first No. 1 US album on the Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 5 million copies in the States alone. Check out the tracklisting and the song stream here.
