The movie soundtrack to ‘Blinded by the Light’ will include previously unreleased Bruce Springsteen songs including the song ‘I’ll Stand By You Always’, offered for a Harry Potter movie but it was rejected.

Springsteen spoke about the rejection in a 2016 interview with the BBC. The song was submitted for ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’. “At some point I’d like to get [“I’ll Stand By You Always”] into a children’s movie of some sort,” Springsteen told the BBC. “It was a pretty lovely song.”

‘Blinded by the Light’ is set in 1987. It is about an Indian teenager living in Britain learning to live life through the worlds of Bruce Springsteen.

The movie will be released on 14 August, 2019.
