The Trailer for Bruce Springsteen’s Western Stars Album Doc Is Maybe the Best Short Film of 2019

The “cinematic film version” of Bruce Springsteen’s Western Stars doesn’t drop everywhere until October, but you can see the trailer for The Boss’s new album visual above and kick off your next existential crisis right now. Springsteen has talked candidly about his struggles (personal, spiritual and creative), and oh god, now it seems he’s challenging you to grapple with the same.

“It’s easy to lose yourself, or never find yourself,” Springsteen narrates in the trailer. “The older you get, the heavier that baggage becomes that you haven’t sorted through, so you run. I’ve done a lot of that kind of running.” He muses, “I’ve spent 35 years trying to learn how to let go of the destructive parts of my character, and I still have days when I struggle with it.” The Western Stars film will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
