Hurry Up Sundown

Album: American Beauty (2014)


  • Springsteen is looking forward on this song to "the end of another working day" and the chance to "pack your blues away." The uptempo rocker is one of four unreleased cuts from the High Hopes sessions included on American Beauty, a limited edition 12-inch vinyl EP that was released exclusively for Record Store Day on April 19, 2014.
  • Springsteen played every instrument on the song with the exception of the drums which were handled by session player Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Devo, and Nine Inch Nails).
