The movie “Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You” has been released early.

“Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You” film, for which an Oct. 23 release had been planned, has instead been released early (Oct. 22). It is viewable now on Apple TV+.

At 7:04 a.m. this morning, Springsteen’s Twitter account tweeted, “Alright, E Streeters … enough waiting! @AppleTV, how about we release #LetterToYouFilm a little early?”

Then, two minutes later, the account tweeted, “Let’s do this thing! 1… 2… 1, 2, 3…”

The Apple TV Twitter account responded, a minute later, by tweeting, “4! Bruce @Springsteen’s #LetterToYouFilm is available early, now on Apple TV+ http://apple.co/LetterToYouFilm.”

You can see the tweets below.

The speed with which Apple TV responded — and the almost immediate appearance of the graphic, above, saying “Out Now” — suggest that this was all planned out beforehand. But whatever. The film is available now, and that is what matters.

Directed by Thom Zimny, “Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You” is a documentary about the making of The Boss’ new album, recorded in the studio with Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Springsteen’s Letter to You album will still be released on Oct. 23.
