Earlier this week, Springsteen joined Zane Lowe on Apple Music for a deep dive into his career, his thoughts on writing a book, his Broadway show, and more.“It was a great project for us,” he says of the new album, “because I don’t think we ever played together in the studio and then kept everything we did on full take, everything. the vocals, all the acting. It’s The E Street Band really completely live. And I overdubbed a few solos and stuff, but it’s really the band in one fell swoop. We’ve played live in the studio before, but we never kept everything, we always went back and overdubbed a voice or overdubbed, put other things.
Letter to you
was produced at the Springsteen, New Jersey home studio with Ron Aniello, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig, and includes previously released songs “Ghosts” and the title track from the LP.All the tracks on it were completed in less than two weeks. “That was the first thing I came up with with a bunch of songs pretty quickly,” Springsteen told Lowe. “It had really been quite a while since I had really put the band together and I hadn’t let them play in the studio. And so it’s all just the timing and what’s going on and where you are in different places in your life and it’s all happening and it’s time. It was just a good time for that. ”
