Bruce Springsteen and The National’s Bryce Dessner collab for new song “Addicted To Romance”

Bruce Springsteen and The National’s Bryce Dessner have collaborated to create a new song titled “Addicted To Romance” for the film She Came To Me.

The Rebecca Miller film is a romantic comedy starring Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones) as a moody classical composer and has its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on 16 February.

Miller told Variety that she loves Bruce’s music and for the end of the film she wanted an original song. “I had a secret wish it might be Bruce, but I was reluctant to ask because I felt it was so unlikely, and frankly I was a bit shy,” she said.

However, Dessner who worked on the film’s score encouraged Miller to approach Springsteen and the rest is history. Springsteen was inspired by the film, wrote and performed “Addicted To Romance” and Dessner orchestrated the song.

Dessner posted on Facebook about fulfilling a lifelong dream in collaborating with Springsteen on the song. “Writing this soundtrack was one of the most rewarding and creative experiences I have had, and I was so honoured to help produce and orchestrate Bruce’s song ‘Addicted to Romance’ for the movie,” he wrote.

The song is due to be released soon but until then, enjoy Bruce’s last album Only The Strong Survive below.
