Bruce Springsteen to Release 'Hunter of Invisible Game' Short Film

Bruce Springsteen to Release 'Hunter of Invisible Game' Short Film
Well, mystery solved. Earlier this month, Bruce Springsteen had us scratching our heads with a cryptic website update that said "coming soon" and included a photo of a man hacking a pile of wood with an axe. Now, the Boss has announced that he's releasing a short film.

A new update features the same axe-welding image along with the title Hunter of Invisible Game, which is the name of a song from last year's High Hopes (listen below). A caption reads, "A short film by Thom Zimny & Bruce Springsteen." We're guessing that this means Springsteen co-directed it.

The film will be released on July 9 at noon EDT through Springsteen's website.

Springsteen previously revealed that Zimny had directed a "beautiful" music video for "Hunter of Invisible Game," and we speculated that this might be the "coming soon" announcement in question. It seems that they've since upgraded it from a music video to a short film.

Stay tuned for the film to emerge next Wednesday.

Although this is good news for Boss fans, it may come as a disappointment for those hoping that the "coming soon" announcement referred to the rocker's previously discussed plans to release some classic live shows from the archives.
