Bruce Springsteen's The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story due this November

New 2010 album and reissue box set tracklist and release date - review coming soon!

The Promise, an album of previously unreleased Bruce Springsteen recordings, will be released along with an expanded deluxe reissue of The Boss's seminal Darkness On The Edge Of Town on 16 November.

The Promise itself is a two-disc album of tracks which were recorded as part of the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Sessions, yet have remained unreleased until now. As well as being available as a stand-alone release, The Promise will be available as part of a six-disc reissue box set entitled The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story.

The six-disc version also includes a remastered edition of the original album, along with three DVDs containing a making-of documentary and live footage. The package also comes with essays, unseen photography and various scribblings detailing the making of the album.
