Bruce Springsteen has released a new song, “Addicted to Romance,” taken from the official soundtrack of the film She Came to Me.
The movie premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February and is set to be in theaters on Oct. 6. Directed by Rebecca Miller, She Came To Me stars Peter Dinklage, Marisa Tomei, and Anne Hathaway.
Miller wanted to get the Boss to contribute a song for the film but was hesitant to contact him at first. Earlier this year, she revealed to Variety:
“I really love Bruce’s music. For the end of She Came to Me, we wanted an original song.
“I had a secret wish it might be Bruce, but I was reluctant to ask because I felt it was so unlikely, and frankly I was a bit shy.”
The film’s composer, Bryce Dessner, also a member of the indie rock band the National, was the one who encouraged Miller to reach out to the rocker. Miller explained:
“[Dessner] was sure Bruce would love the film, so I approached him.
“Bruce and [his wife Patti Scialfa] ended up watching the film, and, to my delight, they both loved it! Bruce said he’d take a few days to see if anything came to him for a song. Miraculously, ‘Addicted to Romance’ was the result. He says he was inspired by the film, which is a great honor for me.”
Meanwhile, Springsteen has decided to reschedule all of his remaining 2023 concert dates to the following year. This decision comes after he had previously postponed his September shows in order to seek treatment for a stomach ulcer condition. A statement on his social media page noted:
“Bruce Springsteen has continued to recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor’s advice.”
“I’m on the mend and can’t wait to see you all next year.”
