Bruce Springsteen Releasing Autobiography in September

We always knew the Boss was “Born to Run,” but Bruce Springsteen has solidified that fact with a new autobiography.

Springsteen is releasing a memoir, titled “Born to Run” (after his hit 1970s song and album) — on Sept. 27 in hardcover, ebook and audiobook editions.

The book — available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia and India — has been in the works since 2009 after the rocker and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. Publishing rights have been sold in nine countries.

“Writing about yourself is a funny business,” the singer says in the book. “But 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.”

According to the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, the book will trace how Springsteen’s early life in Freehold, N.J., amid “poetry, danger and darkness” and his personal struggles inspired him to become a musician. It will also chronicle the rise of the E Street Band.

“This is the book we’ve been hoping for,” said Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp. “Readers will see their own lives in Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary story, just as we recognize ourselves in his songs.”

Springsteen wrote a children’s book, “Outlaw Pete,” in 2014.
