We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions is the fourteenth studio album by American musician, singer, songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released in April 2006 on Columbia Records.

This is Springsteen's first album of non-original material, containing his interpretation of thirteen folk music songs made popular by folk musician Pete Seeger. Seeger did not write any of the songs on the album, his life's work focused on popularising and promoting the ethic of local, historical musical influences and recognizing the cultural significance that folk music embodies.

Springsteen had not known much about Seeger  prior to recording We Shall Overcome for the 1998 tribute album Where Have All the Flowers Gone: The Songs Of Pete Seeger, following which his interest in Seeger’s material and the genre grew.

We Shall Overcome received widespread acclaim from music critics, being described as: "It's a rambunctious, freewheeling, positively joyous record unlike any other in Springsteen's admittedly rich catalog." (All Music); while Rolling Stone magazine believed that Springsteen relied on folk and Americana styles on the album in order to "find a moral compass for a nation that's gone off the rails", particularly on the implicitly political O Mary Don't You Weep, Eyes On The Prize, and We Shall Overcome.

Seeger himself was pleased by the result, saying "It was a great honor. [Springsteen]'s an extraordinary person, as well as an extraordinary singer."

We Shall Overcome won the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album.

This Double LP set on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl is housed in a gatefold sleeve, released in 2016 by Columbia Records and pressed in Europe.
