(hennemusic) Bruce Springsteen has announced a 9-city book tour starting in his hometown of Freehold, NJ on September 27 and released a new video where he reads an excerpt from his forthcoming memoir, "Born To Run.".

Due September 27 via Simon & Schuster, "Born To Run" sees the singer recount growing up in Freehold, NJ, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band.

"I wanted to use the classic rock and roll images - the road, the car, the girl - what else is there?" Springsteen explains. "To make these images matter I'd have to shape them into something fresh, something that transcended nostalgia, sentiment and familiarity."

The singer discusses growing up in the Vietnam War era and the changing American political landscape.

"These were issues that had previously been relegated to the margins of American life," reads Springsteen. "Dread, the sense that things might not work out, that the moral high ground had been swept out from underneath us, that the dream of ourselves had somehow been tainted and the future would forever be uninsured was in the air.

"This was the new lay of the land, and if I was going to put my characters out on that highway, I was going to have to put all these things in the car with them." See the book tour dates and watch the new promo video here.
