Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Bruce Springsteen is set to release a concert film and album that will cover his 1979 No Nukes concerts with the E Street Band that took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The project will contain ten never-before released performances from the concerts and full footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band's entire setlist.

Longtime Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimny is editing the film from the original footage with Bob Clearmountain remixing the album.

Springsteen uploaded a trailer for the film featuring archival footage from the concerts in high definition.

"A few years ago, I started re-examining the filmed archives for Bruce and the Band's appearances at the No Nukes concerts of 1979. I quickly realized that these were the best performances and best filming from the band's legendary '70s, and dedicated myself to bringing out the full potential of the footage," Zimny said in a statement.

"Having worked as Bruce's principal director and editor for the last 20 years, I can say without reservation that this newly re-edited, re-mixed and restored 90-minute film is the gold standard for Bruce and the band live during one of their greatest creative periods," he continued.

Springsteen and former President Barack Obama will be releasing a new book together titled Renegades: Born in the U.S.A. on Oct. 26. The book is an extension of the pair's Spotify podcast of the same name and features intimate conversations between the pair.
