(hennemusic) Bruce Springsteen sat down with Anthony Mason on CBS Sunday Morning over the weekend to discuss his life, career and forthcoming memoir, "Born To Run" and video of the broadcast has been posted online.

Due September 27 via Simon & Schuster, the book sees the singer tell his life story under the title of his signature 1975 song.

"I was trying to make the greatest record you ever heard," says Springsteen of the iconic tune. "A record that after you heard it, you didn't have to hear another record."

While his third album, "Born To Run", proved to be his artistic and commercial breakthrough, Springsteen revealed the source of his personal drive.

"I believe behind every artist has someone that told him that he wasn't worth dirt, and someone that told him they were the second coming of baby Jesus, and they believed them both," he tells Mason. "That is the fuel that starts the fire."

During the episode, Springsteen and Mason toured the singer's hometown of Freehold, NJ, spoke about his relationships with family, his battle with depression in recent years, and the E Street Band - especially saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who passed away in 2011.

"It was very primal," Springsteen says of the relationship the two had. "It was just, 'Oh, you're, you're some missing part of me. You're some dream I'm having.' He was this huge force, you know? While at the same time being very fragile and very dependent himself, which is maybe what the two of us had in common.

"We were both kind of insecure down inside. And we both felt kind of fragile and unsure of ourselves. But when we were together we felt really powerful." Watch the full interview here.
