HBO has just released the first look at High Hopes, the documentary chronicling the making of Bruce Springsteen’s 18th studio album.
In the clip, The Boss talks about the emotional impetus behind the album, also titled High Hopes, and how collaborator Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, served as “the glue” of the project.
The film reunites Springsteen with filmmaker Thom Zimny, who previously directed The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ in 2010. It will feature interviews, behind-the-scenes studio and rehearsal segments, and exclusive E Street Band tour footage.
High Hopes premieres April 4 at 9:30 p.m. ET on HBO.
