Bruce Springsteen is joining in with the rest of us for Record Store Day (April 19). The Jersey musician has announced that he is releasing an EP, American Beauty, that will feature four new, unreleased songs: “American Beauty”, “Mary Mary”, “Hey Blue Eyes” and “Hurry Up Sundown.” And because it is Record Store Day after all, the EP will come on a 12-inch vinyl.

Springsteen also has a new documentary concert film in the works that highlights an event that honored him as the 1013 MusiCares Person of the Year, in Los Angeles, back in February of 2013. It features live Springsteen covers from Mumford and Sons, Alabama Shakes, Patti Smith and more. The film will be available starting March 25.

Bruce has a show date scheduled locally at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, PA for Wednesday, May 14. Get your tickets here.
