Bruce Springsteen has a Halloween treat for all his fans, posting a new song “A Night with the Jersey Devil” as a free download. “If you grew up in central or south Jersey, you grew up with the ‘Jersey Devil.’ Here’s a little musical Halloween treat. Have fun,” Springsteen says in a handwritten note on his website. Springsteen’s Halloween was slightly dampened earlier in the week when he revealed that his Jersey home wouldn’t have its usual bombastic display due to the “catastrophic success” it had in the neighborhood, but this song more than makes up for it. In case you’re not up on your Garden State folklore, the Jersey Devil is a strange, winged creature that dates back to the 1800s and supposedly inhabits the state’s Pine Barrens region.
