Springsteen to Cover Seeger’s Songs on New Album

Bruce Springsteen has recorded 13 of folk singer Pete Seeger’s songs for his next album, We Shall Overcome — The Seeger Sessions. Set for release April 25, the DualDisc version of the album will include two additional songs and a 30-minute documentary. Seeger, now 86, wrote “If I Had a Hammer” and “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season),” but Springsteen did not record those songs for the tribute album. Springsteen will tour North America and Europe this spring although no dates have been announced.
