Bruce Springsteen has announced he will release a box set for 1980’s The River on Dec. 4 featuring bonus material.

The four-CD, three-DVD collection, titled The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, will house never-before-seen concert footage from 1980, a documentary about the album called The Ties That Bind, and previously unreleased music.

The CDs include the double album edition of The River, studio outtakes, and the first release of The River: Single Album, which was originally made as a follow-up in 1979 to 1978’s Darkness On The Edge of Town. Other content features rehearsal footage, clips from a 1980 show in Tempe, Arizona, and a coffee table book filled with 200 rare photos and an essay by Mikal Gilmore.

As a walk-up to the box set, Springsteen tweeted that the collection will feature 11 unreleased rarities, including “Meet Me In The City,” which he already posted online.
