2007 Grammy Award Winner for Traditional Folk Album of the Year!

Columbia Records releases Bruce Springsteen's 21st album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. The album features Bruce's personal interpretations of thirteen traditional songs, all of them associated with the legendary guiding light of American folk music, Pete Seeger, for whom the album is named. Speaking of the origins of the new music, Springsteen said, "So much of my writing, particularly when I write acoustically, comes straight out of the folk tradition. Making this album was creatively liberating because I have a love of all those different roots sounds...they can conjure up a world with just a few notes and a few words."

According to Springsteen's longtime manager Jon Landau, "We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions has a lightness and ease to it, a sheer joyfulness, that makes it very special from top to bottom. Bruce has taken a core group of classic American songs and transformed them into a high energy, modern and very personal statement."

• 13 Traditional songs associated with the legendary Pete Seeger
