Earlier this week, it was announced that Springsteen would be releasing a new live film titled “The Legendary 1979 No Nooks Concerts,” taken from his beneficial performances in aid of anti-nuclear energy organization MUSE.
The film features remixed and remastered audio, and was edited from the original 16mm film by longtime Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimani. The film is set to release later this year, with the final date yet to be confirmed.
It was also revealed this month that a song on Springsteen’s 1975 classic “Thunder Road” would be edited out 46 years after its release. The first line of the song in the original versions of the song’s lyrics is: “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress waves.“
