Back in June, the iconic rocker released his latest studio album, Western Stars, followed by a companion film of the same name. Today’s soundtrack is comprised of live, re-recorded versions of the LP tracks as they appeared in the movie. Additionally, to mirror the film, the OST features a cover of the ’70s Glen Campbell classic “Rhinestone Cowboy”.
Alongside The Boss, the personnel behind Western Stars – Songs from the Film includes a full band and orchestra, along with his wife and frequent collaborator, Patti Scialfa. The 14-track project was recorded live on Springsteen’s own property at Stone Hill Farm in Colts Neck, New Jersey, likely not too far from the musician’s regular gym.
As with the soundtrack, the Western Stars film receives its official theatrical release today. The movie was directed by Springsteen with help from frequent collaborator Thom Zimny.
