Exclusive Video From Springsteen Concert DVD

See "Racing in the Street" from new DVD capturing epic festival set

June 18, 2010 5:30 PM ET

Next Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen's London Calling:  Live in Hyde Park — a complete concert taped in England last June — arrives on DVD and Blu-ray (click above for an exclusive clip of "Racing in the Street"). The concert went down in front of a festival crowd and Gaslight Anthem singer Brian Fallon joined the band for "No Surrender," but the film's editor says what makes the show truly remarkable is its incredible lighting.

"It's a combination of the stage lighting and the daylight," Thom Zimmy tells Rolling Stone. "When you get to 'Jungleland' and 'American Land' you get a sense of the day passing into night."

Like most shows on the group's 2009 tour, the show features Springsteen and the E Street Band playing unrehearsed fan requests. "You literally see him changing the set list," says Zimmy. "If you look back with Bruce's DVDs, they all have a very specific look. Bruce is really involved in the lighting and the look of the DVD, from Live in New York to Live in Dublin. They're all really different. What I like about this one is that it captures Bruce directing the band and the massive scale of the audience."

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
