Two long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.

Renegades- Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one white-looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself.

It includes-
Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen
Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions
Obama’s never-before-seen annotated speeches
Springsteen’s handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career
Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors’ personal archives

  1. Hedley’s Books

    Bruce and Barack are a decade apart in ages and at first glance appear to have little in common but this book provides in bucket loads proof that their lives have been remarkably linked at least from a philosophical perspective. Both passionately nationalistic their words both in speeches, song lyrics and conversation provides much wisdom. What a great gift.
