Bruce Springsteen has teamed with CBS for an early stream of his new album, High Hopes. Starting Sunday night, January 5, fans can stream The Boss' 18th studio album on www.CBS.com/springsteen, and viewers of the network's popular drama The Good Wife will hear snippets of three songs during the January 12 episode. Those songs include the title track, "Hunter of Invisible Game," and "The Ghost of Tom Joad." High Hopes has a release date of January 14.
"This is music I always felt needed to be released," Springsteen said in a statement announcing the deal. "I felt they all deserved a home and a hearing."
The album is Springsteen's first since 2012's Wrecking Ball. As previously reported, it includes contributions from the members of the E Street Band as well as guitarist Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and many additional players. Late E Street members Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici also make posthumous appearances.
