Glen Hansard, frontman of The Frames and The Swell Season and star of Once, is releasing a new EP that boasts an almost nine-minute long version of Bruce Springsteen’s “Drive All Night,” complete with contributions from Eddie Vedder, Jake Clemons, and Joe Henry. The whole track is streaming today at Rolling Stone and really is lovely. The proceeds from the digital sales of the track will be donated to the non-profit Little Kids Rock, which provides music education in public schools that have had their programs cut.
The Drive All Night EP is due out Dec. 3 on Anti- records, and will include not only the title track, but also three other original Hansard tracks.
