Bruce Springsteen scores his 12th No.1 album with ‘Letter To You’

Bruce Springsteen has scored his 12th Number 1 album with Letter To You, making UK chart history.

Outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined, Springsteen’s twentieth studio album is the fastest-selling album of 2020 so far. He is the first credited solo artist to have racked up a No.1 album in five consecutive decades, topping the charts in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s.

Letter To You marks the E Street Band’s first time recording live together in decades. The album’s twelve tracks include material recently written by Springsteen for the E Street Band, as well as new versions of legendary but previously unreleased compositions from the 1970s.

The record is accompanied by a feature-length documentary titled Bruce Springsteen’s Letter To You, which is available exclusively on Apple TV+. Directed by Thom Zimny, the film features full performances from the E Street Band alongside in-studio footage and never-before-seen archival material. 

Throughout the documentary, Springsteen provides a deeper look into Letter To You, sharing the thoughts and feelings behind the record and putting the new music into the context of his entire body of work.

Listen to Letter To You.
