Celebrating 45 Years of ‘Darkness’
Forty-five years ago today, Bruce Springsteen returned with the highly-anticipated release of his timeless-classic fourth studio album “Darkness On The Edge Of Town.”
To celebrate the anniversary, fans can now dive even deeper into the sonic and visual worlds of “Darkness” with a new 20-song live playlist from the ’78 tour — plus a collection of rare Frank Stefanko photos from the era and a newly-cut trailer for “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town” by director Thom Zimny.
Listen to 20 live standouts from The Darkness Tour ’78 — all previously unavailable on major streaming platforms — including performances of every song from “Darkness On The Edge of Town” and a trove of bonus material from that period.
View Frank Stefanko’s photo album of rarely-seen material from the “Darkness” era, including new shots from the iconic cover shoot and the full E Street Band circa 1978.
Finally, in celebration of 45 years of “Darkness on The Edge of Town,” revisit “The Promise” documentary from 2010 — which chronicles the making of the album with historic footage and interviews.
