Exclusive Bruce Springsteen 'Promise' Video: 'Ain't Good Enough For You'
Santa Claus has already come to town this year for Bruce Springsteen fans in the form of the unearthing of tons of vintage, previously unreleased music from the "Darkness On The Edge of Town" sessions on "The Promise" double-disc album and six-disc set, which were both released on Nov. 16. But Billboard.com is proud to premiere this exclusive treat from the Boss: a special new video for the "Promise" tune "Ain't Good Enough For You" created from footage from "Darkness" era sessions, 1976-1978.
The clip, which was produced and edited by Thom Zimny, captures a classic, mid-70s Springsteen at the mic and having a good time in the studio. In the U.K., the track itself was added straight to the A list at Radio 2, and the B list at Absolute Radio last week. The "Promise" albums, meanwhile, have seen action on the charts: the two-disc "The Promise (The Lost Session: Darkness On The Edge Of Town)" hit No. 3 on the Rock Albums chart, while the six-disc CD/DVD "The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story" rose to No. 6. The two-disc "Promise" also went all the way to No. 1 on the Tastemakers Albums tally, with six-disc CD/DVD "The Promise... Story" coming in right behind it at No. 2.
As previously reported, Springsteen not only rocked a pair of "Promise" tracks on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on Nov. 16 ("Save My Love" and "Because The Night"), he also did a hilarious duet with Fallon on tween Willow Smith's new hit, "Whip My Hair."
