With the 2014 edition of Record Store Day right around the corner on April 19, the exclusive releases are piling up. Following the recent release of his High Hopes album, rock'n'roll icon Bruce Springsteen has announced his own contribution.
The Boss will let loose four new songs on an EP called American Beauty. The songs "American Beauty," "Mary Mary" and "Hey Blue Eyes" were culled from the same recording sessions as High Hopes, and there's also a song called "Hurry Up Sundown."
In addition to the new Record Store Day EP, Springsteen is also planning a release of the concert that honoured him as the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year. The Springsteen tribute features covers of his work from Patti Smith, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, John Legend, Elton John and many others.
A MusiCares Tribute to Bruce Springsteen will be available on March 25 on DVD, Blu-ray and as a digital download. The tracklisting is available below.
