Bruce Springsteen will release a new album in honor to Pete Seeger entitled "We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions" on April 25, 2006
The interesting side of being a music artist is that one can express his respect to another through the musical work he develops and that's exactly what Bruce Springsteen has done this time through his upcoming album, "We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions", in his honor to Pete Seeger. Scheduled to touch the market on April 25 under Columbia Records, this latest effort not only uses the folk music legend's name as its partial title, but also will feature Springsteen's interpretations of 13 traditional folk songs that have long been associated with Seeger, such as "Jessie James", "Shenandoah", and particularly "We Shall Overcome."
"Making this album was creatively liberating because I have a love of all those different roots sounds," so Springsteen has commented. "They can conjure up a world with just a few notes and a few words." Following the release plan, Columbia has revealed the singer's intention for a short U.S. and European tour with the dates to be later announced.
