bruce Springsteens Making Of Darkness Premieres In TorontoA documentary about the making of Darkness on the Edge of Town…what do you think of the album that The Boss describes as “carved out of a huge chunk of stone and huge amount of ego”?

[lastfm]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] has opened up about the making of his 1978 album Darkness on the Edge of Town. The album is the subject of a new documentary that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week.

“Darkness was an angry record, a record carved out of a huge chunk of stone and a huge amount of ego, ambition and hunger,” the Boss said in an interview with actor Edward Norton before the premiere.

The documentary, titled The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, was directed by Thom Zimny. It shows Springsteen at a turning point in his career after a three-year legal battle with his record label.

The documentary will air October 7 on HBO and will be included in a CD and DVD box set release of Darkness on the Edge of Town that is due in stores November 16.
