Bruce Springsteen has announced he plans to release a live EP to raise funds for the late E Street Band keyboardist Danny Federici‘s cancer charity.

‘Magic Tour Highlights’ is available to download from July 15. It inludes four tracks and video footage of performances by Rage Against The Machine‘s Tom Morello and Alejandro Escovedo.

One of the tracks, ‘4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)’, features Danny Federici playing with the E Street Band for the last time. He died of melanoma in April this year.

All net profits from sales of the EP will go to the Danny Federici Melanoma Fund, as artists, record labels and iTunes store have agreed to waive their fees.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are midway through their tour of Europe and the US. They play tonight in Oslo (July 8) before travelling to Spain and finishing in Milwaukee on August 30. See for more information.

The EP tracklisting is:

‘Always A Friend’ (with Alejandro Escovedo live in Houston, April 14, 2008)
‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’ (with Tom Morello live in Anaheim, April 7, 2008)
‘Turn Turn Turn’ (with Roger McGuinn live in Orlando, April 23, 2008)
‘4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)’ (Danny Federici’s final performance
with the E Street Band live in Indianapolis, March 20, 2008)
