Pete Seeger will release two albums simultaneously this fall, including one featuring Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Tom Morello, Emmylou Harris and more, reports Billboard. The folk icon will release A More Perfect Union – a 14-track album with all-new material written with Lorre Wyatt featuring duets with Seeger and other musicians – and Pete Remembers Woody, a two-CD set honoring Woody Guthrie’s centennial. Both will be available September 25th on Appleseed Recordings.

“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,” Appleseed owner Jim Musselman told Billboard. “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 new albums mark impressive longevity by Seeger, who turned 93 earlier this year.
