Bruce Springsteen attended the New York premiere of his film "Western Stars" on Wednesday (October 16).

The concert documentary is of the rockstar's first studio album in five years, Springsteen performs with a band and full orchestra, under the cathedral ceiling of his nearly 100-year-old barn at Stone Hill Farm in New Jersey.

Springsteen's longtime collaborator Thom Zimny directed and co-produced the film, but the Boss also made his directorial debut, scripting and narrating the documentary.

"It was fun, I mean I didn't get anywhere near a camera, so, my co-direction credit is really through the graciousness of Thom Zimny, my director.

And we collaborated on the whole film together from the beginning to the end so we split the credit, but I've worked with Thom for 20 years and he's been the life behind all my film projects.

It was a bit of a different experience but a lot of fun," Springsteen told Reuters.

Zimny has directed several projects with Springsteen, including the documentary "The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town," and the film version of the Tony Award-winning "Springsteen on Broadway".

"With Bruce there's always pushing the genre, always taking a chance and an enormous amount of trust.

So, we went through some of the home movies and they ended up in the movie and ironically, as a filmmaker, I think they're the best moments in the film, where Bruce has a hand-held camera, on a honeymoon and captures beauty.

And captures also the essence of a lot of the themes and the love of their relationship, Bruce and Patti's relationship," said Zimny.

Also on the red carpet was fashion veteran Ralph Lauren and E-Street band member and actor, Steven Van Zandt.

Van Zandt says that "Western Star", the film, is the culmination of a Springsteen trilogy which includes autobiography, "Born to Run" and his Broadway performance, "Springsteen on Broadway".

The former "Sopranos" star says these artworks are the unique product of the insights that come with ageing.

"Western Stars" is out on general release from October 25 in the States, and Oct.

28 in the UK.
