Springsteen, Bruce: Memoir, Born to Run, Released September 27

Bruce Springsteen will release his memoir, Born to Run, titled after his hit 1970s song and album, on September 27, 2016 in hardcover, ebook and audiobook editions.

The book — available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia and India — has been in the works since 2009 after the rocker and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. Publishing rights have been sold in nine countries.

“Writing about yourself is a funny business,” the singer says in the book. “But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.”

According to the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, the book traces how Springsteen’s early life in Freehold, N.J. amid “poetry, danger and darkness” and his personal struggles inspired him to become a musician. It will also chronicle the rise of the E Street Band.

“This is the book we’ve been hoping for,” said Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp. “Readers will see their own lives in Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary story, just as we recognize ourselves in his songs.”

Springsteen wrote a children’s book, “Outlaw Pete,” in 2014.
