TORONTO (AP) — [lastfm]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] says he and the E Street Band were on a mission when they made his “Darkness on the Edge of Town” album 32 years ago.

Springsteen opens up about the career-altering album in the documentary “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town,” which premieres Tuesday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film, which played Monday for press, features contemporary interviews with Springsteen and his band along with rehearsal and studio footage as they made the 1978 record, which he calls a “reckoning with the adult world” after the phenomenal success of his “Born to Run” album three years earlier.

Before the premiere, Springsteen will discuss his music in a public chat with actor and friend Edward Norton.
