Bruce Springsteen was a featured guest on the December 10 episode of NBC-TV’s Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

The rocker was on hand to promote his performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend in support of his latest album, “Letter To You.”

“It’s gonna be amazing to play in front of an audience,” Springsteen told Fallon. “It’s been a long time for us.”

Springsteen also spoke about “Letter To You”, which recorded live with the E Street Band over five days last year at his home studio in New Jersey.

“I always liked music where the singer sounded happy and sad simultaneously,” he explained. “Those are kind of songs that I like, that I think hit the deepest — if you’re lucky enough to write one or a small group of them — and ‘Letter To You’ kind of strikes that balance. It’s a record I’m really proud of.”

The late night visit also saw Springsteen discuss, among other things, the first song he learned on guitar, and whether he has ever considered recording a Christmas album.

Springsteen and The E Street Band will perform on the December 12 episode of NBC-TV’s Saturday Night Live, which will be hosted by actor Timothy Chalamet.
