A new version of “Sundown” recently released by Bruce Springsteen from his upcoming concert movie Western Stars.
The movie features the orchestral performance of his recent album, Western Stars, and it’s set to be released in theaters this coming Oct. 19 and 23 before its general release on Oct. 25 which includes the soundtrack LP Western Stars: Songs From the Film.
Watch “Sundown” below:
“We knew we weren’t going to tour. I was looking for a way to get some of the music life to an audience … so we figured that was the best way to do it.” In another interview he said: “I think ending up in the barn had a lot to do with the way the thing felt, you know? It was just kind of gritty and intimate. It was very intimate, which is what a lot of the songs are.”
He also admitted earlier this year that Western Stars is something that his fans didn’t expect from him:
“But just walking around and talking to the fans on the street and seeing how the record was received was very exciting,” he said. He added that his fans “really follows me where I need to go,” and continued: “That is something that is so deeply appreciated by me. It’s really something I’m proud of. They aren’t stuck in a rut. They don’t only want to hear [a] specific group of songs. They are really adventurous … it’s a lovely thing and I just want to send a thank-you out to my great audience.”
