The Gaslight Anthem have shared a new song ‘History Books’ on their own Rich Mahogany Recordings label via Thirty Tigers. The heavy-hearted track, which sees frontman Brian Fallon trading duet vocals with longtime band champion and fellow New Jerseyan Bruce Springsteen, is accompanied by an official music video (directed by Kelsey Ayres). ‘History Books’ also serves as the title track for the Gaslight Anthem’s first new album together in almost a decade, which arrives on October 27th.

“When Bruce Springsteen said I should write a duet for us, I think my head exploded,” says Brian Fallon. “It will never get old to me that one of the greatest songwriters in the world, and one of my hero’s voices, will forever be captured in a song I wrote at a small wooden desk, in October, in New Jersey.”

“When you have a band reach any level of success or popularity, that’s a gift,” Fallon says. “It’s truly a miracle to be able to do your art for a living. Having the band come this far and be able to still find inspiration and connection in our music is a treasure. We’re thrilled to be back, and we thank our fans for allowing us time to regroup.”
