Bruce Springsteen to Release New Song
Bruce Springsteen has announced that he will release a proper version of the song "High Hopes" on Nov. 25, and sources tell Billboard that a full-length album could be released as soon as January.
Springsteen confirmed the release of "High Hopes" by posting cover art to his Facebook page and brucespringsteen.net.
Fans will recall that the Freehold, N.J., native included a version of the song on his 1995 EP Blood Brothers and in the subsequent 1996 documentary of the same name. The song originally was performed by the Los Angeles band The Havalinas.
The E Street Band performed a version of the song with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello during a show in Australia, and Springsteen said the group recorded some tracks during that time.
