They're doing 'The Singing Detective'
Bruce Springsteen guest stars on the forthcoming new album by Dropkick Murphys.
The New Jersey rocker duets with frontman Ken Casey on a cover of the 1913 song ‘Peg O’ My Heart’, which is best known in the UK as the theme from 1986 BBC TV series The Singing Detective.
Casey said of the duet: “It links two generations. We’re spanning a lot of years of music here, yet our songs share similar themes, stories, and values.”
The track features on the band’s seventh studio album ‘Going Out In Style’, due for release on February 28. The album also features a guest appearance from NOFX frontman Fat Mike.
Dropkick Murphys will tour Europe in April.
