Glen Hansard Covers Springsteen on New EP
Irish musician Glen Hansard has an awesome catalogue, including several rad covers. Hansard's latest EP adds to that list that features a cover by the legendary Bruce Springsteen. Glen Hansard has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, and he has definitely earned that honor. The Drive All Night EP features the Springsteen tune of the same name.
The original Drive All Night appeared on Springsteen's 1980 album The River, taking up a solid 9 minutes of the double LP. Hansard's version is also nine minutes long, but it has it's own unique flavor of rock and roll. In addition to the Boss cover, Hansard wrote three new original tracks and included guest musicians like Eddie Vedder, Joe Henry, and even Jake Clemons, nephew of the E Street Band's Clarence Clemons.
Expect the new EP in record stores on November 25th. It's currently available for pre-order on Amazon
