“The band played entirely live, all the vocals are taken first, so it was a unique and wonderful experience,” he revealed.
His wife, singer Patti Scialfa, joined him in the studio alongside guitarists Steve Van Zandt and Nils Lofgren, drummer Max Weinberg, bassist Garry Tallent, keyboardist Roy Bittan and saxophonist Jake Clemons.
The five days of recording sessions are documented in a new film, also called Letter To You, which is released on Apple TV.
He said on Nine’s Today: “We actually recorded the record in four days and the fifth day we listened and told stories.”
Springsteen’s interview comes after he joked that he would move to Australia if Donald Trump was re-elected.
The 20 Grammy winner made the cheerful comment during a virtual press conference promoting his new album.
Springsteen, a longtime critic of the president, was asked by an Australian journalist if he would consider moving down in the event Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden loses the November 3 election.
“I would think about it,” he replied.

“I love Australia. We only have good times there; it’s always a treat to come. Love people, love geography. [It’s a] ideal place for motorcycle trips… it is close to our hearts. ‘
He made the remark – which was not meant to be taken seriously – after sharing his thoughts on Trump’s re-election campaign and its chances of success.
“If Trump is re-elected – which he won’t do, they’re predicting right now that he’s going to lose – but if by any chance he does, I’ll see you on the next plane,” he said.
