Springsteen's "Working On A Dream" To Feature Eight Minute "Outlaw Pete," Danny Federici

December 9, 2008 10:13 AM ET

More details about Bruce Springsteen's upcoming Working On a Dream have emerged, thanks to Billboard. For starters, leadoff track "Outlaw Pete" clocks in at eight minutes, making it Bruce's longest studio song since The River's "Drive All Night" back in 1980. (It's safe to assume Springsteen will not be performing "Outlaw Pete" at this year's Super Bowl halftime show.) Other tracks on Working include "Tomorrow Never Knows," "Queen of the Supermarket" and the previously released "My Lucky Day" and "Working On a Dream." It was also revealed that E Street Band organist Danny Federici, who died in April 2008 from melanoma, and his son Jason Federici will also feature on the album. Working will be available January 27th on vinyl as well as a deluxe edition that will contain a DVD with 38 minutes of behind-the-scenes studio footage. The album's cover art was also unveiled, which you can see in the photo above.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
