Earlier this week, it was announced that Springsteen would be releasing a new live-action film titled “The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts”, drawn from his charitable performances benefiting the anti-nuclear organization MUSE.
The film features remixed and remastered sound, and was edited from the original 16mm film by longtime Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimny. The film is slated for release later this year, with a final date yet to be confirmed.
This month, it was also revealed that a lyrics from the 1975 Springsteen classic “Thunder Road” will be released 46 years after the song’s release. The original versions of the song’s lyrics have the first line of the song: “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress ripples.“
A debate has recently started to rage online among those who think Mary’s dress “swings” rather than “waves”. This was later confirmed by longtime Springsteen manager and “Born to Run” co-producer Jon Landau, who said The New Yorker her dress actually “swings” and typos in the official Springsteen material would be corrected.
