Bruce Springsteen is a very special fellow in the eyes of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences .

The Academy announced Wednesday that Bruce is among its newly-elected fellows.  Other members of the class of 2013 include actors Robert De Niro and Sally Field , filmmaker Albert Maysles and folk legend Pete Seeger , who inspired Bruce's 2006 album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions .

Founded in 1780, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences is an independent policy research center that studies "complex and emerging problems."  In a statement the president of the Academy said, "We look forward to drawing on the knowledge and expertise of these distinguished men and women to advance solutions to the pressing policy challenges of the day."

Induction ceremonies for the 198 new fellows will be held October 12 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
