(via Bruce Springsteen Guests on New Pete Seeger Album | Billboard.com)
Bruce Springsteen has recorded a new Pete Seeger song for a Seeger album that is penciled in for release this holiday season.
Springsteen sings two verses and a chorus on “God is Counting on Us,” a song Seeger wrote in response to the oil spill in the Gulf Coast. Appleseed Recordings will release the Seeger album.
The song will be the sixth exclusive Springsteen song that Appleseed has released in conjunction with its various Seeger projects, label owner Jim Musselman told Billboard.com. The Boss has had tracks on 1998’s “Where Have all the Flowers Gone,” 2007’s “Sowing the Seeds” and 2007’s “Give Us Your Poor,” among others. “Tomorrow’s Children,” the latest Seeger recording from Appleseed, won the Grammy this year for best musical album for children. Seeger, 92, has been honored with Grammys, a Kennedy Center Award, the Presidential Medal of the Arts and a Lifetime Legends medal from the Library of Congress.
Musselman is calling on others to contribute to the album that he hopes to have singed within the next few weeks. Springsteen paid tribute to Seeger in 2006 with his album “We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions” and a live album from his tour performing the material.

#hang in there big man
By now, many of you have heard that our beloved comrade and sax player Clarence Clemons has suffered a serious stroke. While all initial signs are encouraging, Clarence will need much care and support to achieve his potential once again. He has his wonderfully supportive wife, Victoria, excellent doctors and health care professionals, and is surrounded by friends and family.
I thank you all for your prayers and positive energy and concern. This is a time for us all to share in a hopeful spirit that can ultimately inspire Clarence to greater heights.
You can also send your get well messages to Clarence by e-mailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey guys, love your site. Always great photos of the Boss.
I'm looking to make a one-off t-shirt using this photo: http://fuckyeahtheboss.tumblr.com/post/4192475392
Know where I could find a higher resolution pic?
Thank you! I’m afraid I don’t know about the photo - and I’m not sure it’s totally kosher to have this printed on a t-shirt without authorisation from Eric Meola.
Just putting this out there in case somebody has a clue and can help you.
Shhh! Don’t tell anybody.
Where do you get all your vintage 70's/80's photos of Bruce?
You should ask Sarah and Wil: they’re the ones with the best scanners.
I'm going to apologize in advance for going through your archive and reblogging the hell out of them, I can't help it if this is one awesome Bruce blog!
No need to apologize, that’s the spirit!
Just please make sure to acknowledge sources/photographers etc.
Please contribute to a Get Well video for Clarence!
The idea is to have fans around the world send in pics of themselves raising their hands in support of Clarence, a tribute to the line from Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out:
The change was made uptown, and the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the cities, all the little pretties raise their hands
