Bruce Springsteen famously wrote a song for 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone that has yet to receive an official release, but thanks to the upcoming film Blinded By The Light, the track’s release is now a reality.
Embedded below is “I’ll Stand By You,” an emotional ballad that frankly would’ve felt a little weird attached to the Harry Potter film saga, but it’s a beautiful song nonetheless. The track joins hits like “Dancing in the Dark” and “Hungry Heart” on the Blinded By The Light soundtrack. Also included are two rare live cuts: a recording of “The River” from a September 21, 1979 show at Madison Square Garden and a recording of “The Promised Land” from Springsteen’s set during 2014’s A Night of Valor concert at The National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Veterans Day.
The Blinded By The Light Soundtrack is available now through all major music outlets and streaming services.
