Overview

Devils & Dust is the thirteenth studio album by American recording artist Bruce Springsteen, and his third acoustic album (after Nebraska and The Ghost of Tom Joad). It was released on April 25, 2005, in Europe and on April 26, 2005, in the United States. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 album chart. Springsteen was very open about the fact that many of the songs from Devils & Dust dated back a decade or more. He wrote the song "All the Way Home" for Southside Johnny to use in his album Better Days, which was released in 1991. The songs "Long Time Comin'" and "The Hitter" were written and performed during Springsteen's solo Ghost of Tom Joad Tour in 1996. "Devils & Dust" is also known to have been written previously, and was featured in soundchecks during The Rising-tour beginning in the summer of 2003 and the following year during the Vote for Change Tour in late 2004. (Springsteen had "Devils & Dust" on his set list for at least one Vote for Change show, but at the last moment decided to perform a 12 string guitar rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner", which he would later release for free through his official website).
