Posted July 23rd, 2014 @ 3:24pm

A tribute album to Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA will release on September 16.  The album will feature covers of the songs of the album by various alternative and Americana artists.

The tribute album is called Dead Man's Town, an allusion to the first line of the album's title track.

The title track will be covered by husband and wife duo Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires.  Isbell told Rolling Stone,"I love that the song paints a picture of struggle in the face of the American dream, and the irony in the chorus is delivered with such force that it nearly transcends irony altogether."

Other artists on the album include Justin Townes Earle, Trampled by Turtles, and Low.

Listen to two of the songs on the album below.
