Just days after disappointing thousands of New Jersey residents by discontinuing the massive Halloween display on his front lawn in New Jersey, Bruce Springsteen has found a way to repay his fans.

Springsteen has recorded a new song, "A Night With the Jersey Devil," and today posted a free download on his official site.

"If you grew up in central or south Jersey, you grew up with the "Jersey Devil," Sprinsteen writes on his site. "Here's a little musical Halloween treat. Have fun!"

Go to Bruce Springsteen's website for the free download.

Here's a little bit of info for y'all.


Bruce isn't home tonight.

He & Pattie are here in Syracuse watching daughter Jessica compete in a horse show.

They come here every year.

Last year my brother Rick was stopped at a traffic light outside the venue and Bruce came by with Jessica, Bruce leading the horse through the crosswalk.

Bruce Springsteen plays the role of proud dad at horse show in Syracuse

From Saturday: Legendary rock star Bruce Springsteen was in Syracuse Saturday to watch his daughter Jessica perform in the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament. The young Ms. Springsteen did not disappoint.

On Saturday, she won the Maclay ASPCA Horsemanship award. Springsteen won out of a group of 150 junior riders aged 18 and under, and was honored in a ceremony shortly before the night's World Cup Qualifier. She currently leads the Bates Equation Rankings points standings, a national circuit of junior riders. On Friday, she and her eight-year-old horse Tiziano took home the Small Junior Hunter Champion award.

Her famous dad, mom (musician Patti Scialfa), and brothers Evan and Sam shared Jessica's moment in the spotlight Saturday for a photo opportunity.

Jessica Springsteen, 16, took home several other awards as well. The "Blue By You" Memorial Challenge Trophy was presented to her in honor of the Best Junior Hunter Round award. In addition, Springsteen was also Grand Junior Hunter Champion and took home The "Theodorus Van Wyck Cusny" Memorial Challenge Trophy. She also received the Best Child Rider award.

"It has been really fun this year. All of my horses couldn't have gone any better," said Springsteen. "I am really happy with the way things have turned out. I am really excited. I think now I am going to take a few weeks off and catch up on my school work."



Meanwhile, back in Rumson, New Jersey, where the Springsteens live, the neighbors are disappointed that they didn't find the lights on outside the family's mansion this Halloween.

Springsteen said on his Web site that they canceled their usual elaborate Halloween display featuring masked characters and decorations because of "catastrophic success."

The 59-year-old rocker and his wife said too many visitors to their Rumson neighborhood raised concerns for the safety of children and parents. Perhaps the family trip to Syracuse over the Halloween weekend provided another reason to forego the decorations this year.

But The Boss offered his fans a Halloween treat nonetheless. He posted a free download of his song, "A Night with The Jersey Devil." Here's the message he posted with the download offer:
"If you grew up in central or south Jersey, you grew up with the 'Jersey Devil'. Here's a little musical Halloween treat. Have fun!"

Don't expect to spot Jessica Springsteen's dad at the horse show in Syracuse on Sunday. He'll be in Cleveland with Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama giving a free acoustic performance at a rally in Cleveland. The rally is set for 3:45 p.m.

Obama and his wife Michelle will speak to the crowd following Springsteen's performance. Springsteen appeared in the same place with Democratic candidate John Kerry on the final day of the 2004 campaign.
