April 15, 2004 12:00 AM ET

Patti Scialfa will release her second album, 23rd Street Lullaby, on June 15th. The set is the E Street Band singer's first solo recording since her debut Rumble Doll eleven years ago.

Scialfa enlisted a pair of E Streeters -- guitarist Nils Lofgren and singer Soozie Tyrell -- to guest on the album, though her husband, Bruce Springsteen, doesn't make an appearance. The set also features progressive guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Sam Phillips), bassist Willie Weeks (David Bowie, George Harrison), keyboardist Clifford Carter (James Taylor) and cellist Jane Scarpantoni (R.E.M., Lou Reed). Steve Jordon, who has worked with Keith Richards and Sheryl Crow, played drums and co-produced the album with Scialfa.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
