Drawing inspiration from Warren Zanes’ book of the same name, the film will explore the creative process behind ‘Nebraska’ and Springsteen’s decision to release the album’s raw, stripped-back demos rather than re-record them with the E Street Band.

Released as Springsteen’s sixth studio album, ‘Nebraska’ marked a departure from his usual sound, featuring hauntingly sparse recordings that reflected the artist’s introspective and introspective state of mind. The album has since become a revered classic in Springsteen’s discography, praised for its raw authenticity and emotional depth.
