NEW YORK, March 3 (UPI) -- New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen's next album is a tribute to folk icon Pete Seeger.

"We Shall Overcome -- The Seeger Sessions" hits U.S. store shelves April 25, Billboard.com reported Friday.

The 13-track album includes "Old Dan Tucker," "We Shall Overcome," "Shenandoah," "Erie Canal" and "Froggie Went A-Courtin." The DualDisc release includes two bonus songs -- "Buffalo Gals" and "How Can I Keep From Singing" -- and a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary.

Springsteen's wife, Patti Scialfa, fellow E Street Band mate Soozie Tyrell, trumpet player Mark Pender, trombonist Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg, guitarist Frank Bruno and upright bassist Jeremy Chatzy also play on the album.

Springsteen plans to take his Seeger show on the road in the spring with dates still to be announced.
