Can’t wait!

Mrs. Boss Is back
Patti Scialfa will release her sophomore solo album, “23rd Street Lullaby,” June 15 via Columbia. The E Street Band singer/guitarist and wife of Bruce Springsteen wrote the entirety of the 12-track album, which she co-produced with Steve Jordan (Keith Richards, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion).
Jordan also played drums on the set, which also sports contributions from E Street guitarist Nils Lofgren and singer/violinist Soozie Tyrell, bassist Willie Weeks, keyboardist Clifford Carter, guitarist Marc Ribot and cellist Jane Scarpantoni. One song, “Romeo,” was heard in the 1998 film “No Looking Back.”
Tyrell, Carter and Lofgren also helped out on Scialfa’s 1993 debut, “Rumble Doll,” which reached No. 23 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. That set boasted appearances by Springsteen, drummers Jim Keltner and Kenny Aronoff, and Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and guitarist Mike Campbell, among others.
Scialfa is playing a showcase concert this weekend at an as-yet-undisclosed location in New York. Columbia is giving tickets away through a trivia contest on her label-based Web site.
