Columbia Records is set to release "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story," a three CD/three DVD box set detailing the making of Bruce Springsteen's landmark album, on Nov. 16. The package will include the 1978 album, 21 unreleased songs and the 90-minute documentary "The Promise: The Making of 'Darkness on the Edge of Town'."

"The Promise" boasts three CDs: a remastered version of "Darkness" as well as two albums worth of never-released tracks from the recording sessions. The set will also include an 80-page notebook with reprints of Springsteen's original notes during the album's recording sessions, which contain alternate lyrics, song ideas and personal notes.

Two DVDs' worth of archived concert footage will be included along with the "Promise" documentary, which will debut at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 14 and air on HBO on Oct. 7.
