Bruce Springsteen has unveiled Ghosts, the second track from his new album with the E Street Band, Letter to You.

Launching the video the day after his 71st birthday, Springsteen said: "Ghosts is about the beauty and joy of being in a band, and the pain of losing one another to illness and time.

"Ghosts tries to speak to the spirit of the music itself, something none of us owns but can only discover and share together. In the E Street Band, it resides in our collective soul, powered by the heart."

The video features Springsteen and co tracking the song in his home studio, and archive photos of his earliest years as a performer.

Letter to You is released on Friday, October 23. Springsteen premiered the title track earlier this month.
