Bruce Springsteen has spoken about his plans for upcoming releases, saying that he has “a lot of projects” ready for the near future, including some full-length “lost albums” ready to be released from his archive.

It follows last week’s announcement of the album Letter To You, alongside the title single – Springsteen’s first album with the E Street Band since 2014.

Talking to Rolling Stone, Springsteen said of his archives: “There’s a lot of really good music left. You just go back there. It’s not that hard. If I pull out something from 1980, or 1985, or 1970, it’s amazing how you can slip into that voice. It’s just sort of a headspace. All of those voices remain available to me, if I want to go to them.”

The full-length “lost albums” are set to arrive in tandem with “more scattered outtakes, according to the interview.

It also touched on how the entirety of Letter To You was written on a guitar given to him by a fan. “All the songs from the album came out of it,” he said. “In perhaps less than 10 days. I just wandered around the house in different rooms, and I wrote a song each day. I wrote a song in the bedroom. I wrote a song in our bar. I wrote a song in the living room.”

Letter To You arrives 23 October. For more music news, click here.
