Bruce Springsteen has unveiled a previously unreleased song, “I’ll Stand by You,” in association with the new movie Blinded by the Light.
The piece was written for the 2001 film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone but wasn’t included in the final production. It instead appears on the soundtrack to the 2019 feature based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir, Greetings From Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll.
The movie explores the story of a young British Muslim whose search for self-identity is fueled by his discovery of Springsteen’s music. You can listen to “I’ll Stand by You” below.
