Spingsteen to Release New Album "High Hopes" January 14

Posted by - 08:36 PM on 11/24/13
Bruce Springsteen just announced a new album called High Hopes for release January 14, 2014 via Columbia Records. Hit the replies to see the artwork and the track listing. This represents his 18th studio album and the follow-up to 2012's No. 1-charting Wrecking Ball. The 12-track album consists of three cover songs as well as two new takes on old songs: Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), who plays live semi-regularly with the E Street Band, will duet with The Boss on a new version of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" and we also get a studio version of "American Skin (41 Shots)" from Live in New York City. The rest of the album is composed of new or previously unreleased material.

A good portion of High Hopes was presumably recorded during studio time with the E Street Band and Morello while on tour in Australia. In an interview with Rolling Stone from June, when asked about new material Springsteen said:
I hate to say, because I don't like to be wrong, but I have a lot of material. I still feel like I'm in the middle of the well.

You can pre-order High Hopes on iTunes now.

Two covers is a weird look, but excited to hear Morello in studio on "Tom Joad," extremely excited for a recorded version of "41 Shots" and just generally praising new Springsteen stuff. Very odd that this is only getting a 6-week ramp-up following a No. 1-charting album, but then again he can do anything. Also "Harry's Place" just sounds like a spiritual follow-up to "Mary's Place," one of Bruce's most underrated songs in my opinion.

Also for announcing at around midnight on a Sunday before Thanksgiving. That's just like - alright, I feel you.

I wonder if there will be a 2-year-long "High Hopes" world tour.
