US rock star Bruce Springsteen has put a free musical download on his website as a seasonal treat for fans.

The new song, entitled A Night With the Jersey Devil, talks about "16 witches casting 16 spells".

Springsteen wrote: "If you grew up in south or central Jersey, you grew up with the Jersey Devil."

The musician recently cancelled an annual Halloween display at his New Jersey home over concerns about the volume of visitors it would attract.

Springsteen's website also features a video to accompany the song.

The Jersey Devil is a legendary two-legged creature, often depicted with wings and hooves, which is said to inhabit the Pine Barrens area of New Jersey.

Various sightings of the animal have been reported since the 18th century.
