Bruce Springsteen’s The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story Unveiled for Nov. 16 Release
Columbia Records has just announced Bruce Springsteen’s The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story will be released on November 16.
For the first time, fans will have access to 21 never-before-heard complete songs from the “Darkness” recording sessions on 2 CD or 4 LP 180-gram vinyl sets that will be available as The Promise. “‘Darkness’ was my ‘samurai’ record,” Springsteen writes, “stripped to the frame and ready to rumble. But the music that got left behind was substantial.” The Promise will also include the new essay from Bruce Springsteen, lyrics to all new tracks and unseen photographs from the Darkness On The Edge of Town sessions.
Containing a wealth of previously unreleased material, The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story offers an unprecedented look into Springsteen’s creative process during a defining moment in his career. In addition to the The Promise 2 CDs, the deluxe 3 CD/3 DVD and 3 CD/3 Blu-ray Disc versions include the Darkness on the Edge of Town album digitally remastered for the first time. Comprising over six hours of film and more than two hours of audio, The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story is packaged within an 80-page spiral-bound reproduction of Bruce’s original notebooks documenting the recording sessions for the album, containing alternate lyrics, song ideas, recording details and personal notes.
