is 93 years-old but he isn’t slowing down his musical output. In fact, he’s releasing two albums this fall, both scheduled for release on September 25. One album, Pete Remembers Woody, is a two-disc tribute to the late Woody Guthrie. The album includes some covers of Guthrie songs as well as Seeger recalling memories of Guthrie.
The other album, A More Perfect Union, features an impressive duet line up of Seeger with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, and Dar Williams. According to Billboard.com, the album will feature fourteen brand new songs influenced by political, economic, and environmental issues. For example, the song Seeger recorded with Springsteen, “God’s Counting On Me… God’s Counting On You,” is a response to the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
