Bruce Springsteen's classic 1975 album Born To Run has been recreated with ukulele, bass, percussion and vocals as "Born To Uke," which is set to be released January, 18th, We were sent the following details:

The album features Grammy winners Emily Saliers (The Indigo Girls) and Sara Watkins (I'm With Her, Nickel Creek), The Weepies, Will Kimbrough and more. All proceeds will benefit Little Kids Rock, funding music education in underprivileged public schools.

In terms of production and arrangements, the only direction offered to the artists was the "rule" that the recordings needed to be limited to ukulele, bass, vocals and percussion. "The ukulele - assuming one of well quality and well played - is substantial and brings something to music that other instruments simply cannot," says Keith Metzger, the producer, and also a perfomer, on Born To Uke.

The project was recorded in pro and home studios in the Bay Area, Nashville, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Iowa City and even Iceland. It presents songs from the seminal album in a way they've never been played or heard before, with stark arrangements bringing emphasis to the lyrics, the meaning and message.
