As if his 10th top-10 album wasn’t enough on its own, Bruce Springsteen has released an accompanying documentary that shares the same name of the Wrecking Ball record.
The 22-minute piece was helmed by Springsteen’s official archivist, Thom Zimny, and features both live footage and scenes from a Paris press conference just before Wrecking Ball dropped.
At the presser, Springsteen’s gravelly voice talks about the working class theme of the album and how his “work has always been about judging the distance between the American reality and the American dream.”
The Boss also touches on the tragic death of longtime E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who passed away in 2011.
