Bruce Springsteen will make his first appearance on “THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT,” Friday, Sept. 23 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. In an extended interview with Colbert, Springsteen will discuss his forthcoming autobiography, Born to Run.

In the book he describes growing up in New Jersey, his drive to become a musician, the rise of the E Street Band and more. Born to Run, published by Simon & Schuster (a division of CBS Corporation), will be released internationally on Sept. 27. “Chapter and Verse,” the companion album to Springsteen’s autobiography, will be released Sept. 23 on Columbia Records. The compilation album features 18 tracks, including five that are previously unreleased.

THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT, a production of The Late Show Inc., airs weeknights (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Tom Purcell and Jon Stewart are the executive producers.
