Attention Springsteen fans: HBO just announced a documentary on the making of the Boss’s 18th studio album, High Hopes.

Bruce will be reuniting with filmmaker Thom Zimny, who previously directed The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ in 2010. The film will feature behind-the-scenes studio and rehearsal segments, exclusive E Street Band tour footage, and interviews with Springsteen and album collaborator Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. The two discuss their artistic choices for the project and explain how Morello brought a distinctive twist to Springsteen’s material. When High Hopes was released in January, it sold 99,000 copies in its first week, bumping it to No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The film will run on HBO on Friday, April 4th at 9:30pm EST; read EW’s take on High Hopes here.
