With a unique creative vision Springsteen selected the songs on Chapter and Verse to reflect the themes and sections of his biography Born to Run.

The compilation begins with two tracks from The Castiles, and ends with the title track from 2012's Wrecking Ball. The collected songs trace Springsteen's musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book.

Chapter and Verse will be available as a single CD and double LP, as well as via digital download and streaming.

Cherie’s final verdict: This is a historical musical outing by journeyman Bruce Springsteen, a "must get" for all fans.

“In a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.” - Bruce Springsteen
