Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, who made a joint guest appearance on Dion’s 2020 album Blues With Friends, will do the same on the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s upcoming Stomping Ground. The album is due out Nov. 5 and will feature Springsteen (on guitar and harmonica) and Scialfa (on vocals) on a new song titled “Angel in the Alleyways.”
(Oct. 13 Update: A video for “Angel in the Alleyways” is now available and I have added below.)
Most of the songs on the album, except for a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Red House,” are originals, co-written by Dion and Mike Aquilina. “I’ve Got to Get to You,” featuring Boz Scaggs, was released as a single last month. “Take It Back,” featuring Joe Bonamassa (see below), came out this week as the second single, and “Angel in the Alleyways” will be the third, Oct. 13.
