Pete Seeger - Pete Seeger To Release All-star Duets
Folk legend Pete Seeger has teamed up with stars including Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris for an album of duets.
Steve Earle, Dar Williams and Rage Against The MAChine rocker Tom Morello have also recorded collaborations for the veteran star's upcoming A More Perfect Union, which Seeger wrote with singer/songwriter Lorre Wyatt.
Jim Musselman, owner of record label Appleseed, tells Billboard.com, "We really wanted people who are carrying on Pete's spirit. Bruce Springsteen has carried on Pete's vision. Tom Morello and the albums he is doing as the Nightwatchman are among the best political albums out now.
"Pete loves harmony singers and I feel the best is Emmylou Harris. All of the artists jumped at the opportunity to do something like this."
The collection is due out on 25 September (12) and will be released simultaneously with Pete Remembers Woody, a two-Cd set celebrating Woody Guthrie's music.
