Bruce Springsteen plans movie to complement ‘Western Stars’ album

Bruce Springsteen announced a film companion to his “Western Stars” album.

The Boss called in to SiriusXM’s E Street Radio on Wednesday and during the conversation talked about what fans can expect from the movie.

“I play the record start to finish along with some other things,” Springsteen said. “And so, ‘cause we weren't going to tour, we knew we weren't going to tour, so I was looking for a way to get some of the music lives to the audience. And so we figured that was the best way to do it.”

Springsteen didn’t produce any other details – such as a release date or if the film would be in theaters or on a streaming service – but he did note that Thom Zimny, who directed “Springsteen on Broadway,” helmed this as well. 

While Springsteen said a few weeks ago that a new album and tour with the E Street Band is in the works, he didn’t elaborate during the interview, only acknowledging that he is “working on other things.”
