A Night with the Jersey Devil

Halloween is upon us, so that can only mean one thing.

No, not trick or treating or ghosts or goblins.

This year's Halloween treat comes completely out of left field in the form of "A Night with the Jersey Devil," a new Bruce Springsteen song -- with video -- posted to his official website, along with a link to an MP3 download of the audio.

My friend Aaron described the video as "There Will Be Blood" meets "Apocalypse Now" meets a Southern Baptist preacher meets Bruce Springsteen.

That about sums it up for me.

Lord, please let the new album sound as loose and rollicking as this wildman blues/folk stomp.
